Just press hard on the bubble with your finger to turn the bubble light on. You may have to do it a couple of times. It goes off by itself after a short time.

When i look through it everything is upside down


That's entirely normal and correct for ALL astronomical telescopes.

If you want to use it to view land or sea based objects (terrestrial viewing), you need to fit an erecting tube between the telescope and the eyepiece. This corrects the image at the expense of some loss of image quality which is OK for terrestrial daytime viewing but unacceptable for night-time astronomical viewing of what are mostly very faint low contrast objects.

Hi,
As I suspected the Gitzo 5541LS replaces both the GT5540LS and the G1548 tripod. Currently, there is an ongoing rebate until 06/30/2010.
Hope this helps. Andrew Don't forget to vote.
