Upside down images on my telescope. Bought used -no manuel. What to do?

OK, I was given a field vision telescope as a gift. model #F700/76. The is a very small operationinstruction manual with it that covers pretty much nothing. Having never had a telescope before, I have no idea why the images I view are upside down. I assume they are not supposed ot be... how does one correct this? Is it missing a lens or am I doing something wrong? HELP! my telescope also shows images upside down.Bought it used, no manuel, what to do?

In a refractor images are upside down as with most telescopes. You need an image erector to create a normal correct R and L and Up and Down image. It is a lens which goes in front of the eyepiece to give a correct image.

SOURCE: upside down images

In your telescope kit (I have one as well)there should be 2 long tubes that fits in the eyepiece socket on the telescope. One of these is the erector lense that will flip the images for you. Eben

Why when I look through my telescope it's upside down


The image in astronomical telescopes are naturally upside down. This can be corrected using an inverting eyepiece . The reason this is the case, is that normally when viewing astronomical objects it doesn't matter if the image is upside down, so to minimise the loss of light that is the more important issue, unnecessary optical surfaces are eliminated. Terrestrial telescopes do naturally have inverting eyepieces as people expect to see objects the right way up.
Getting and inverting eyepiece will be cheaper the changing telescopes! :) Your eyes see everything upside down too, but your brain turns the image the right way up. The image in cameras is also upside down at the image plane, but the electronics turn it the right way up for you.

Having been given a Celestron LT 76AZ for Christmas, the viewer seems to be in the wrong place, ie horizontal, and the image seen is upside down - can I rectify this?


This telescope works by a mirror. The image is upside down, sorry.
However you might want to get a Telescope USB camera, then you can see the image on your PC the right way up.

All astronomical telescopes show upside down and or inverted images-- it's normal nothing is wrong. You are applying too much magnification. Do not use the 2x barlow-- and start practicing how to focus using only the eyepiece with the largest number written on it which is your LOWEST power.

You can practice focusing during the daytime on a distant object like a telephone pole or a building.

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.

Image is upside down (inverted)


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images this is normal.

You can buy an "erecting prism" to use for terrestrial viewing from many on-line retailers here is one: This will flip the image so it is not upside down.

Object moves around in and out of the field of vision.


Go to a lower power eyepiece. Unless the telescope has a tracking motor, and the telescope is aligned to the pole, objects will drift out of the field of view rapidly.

Upside down images


As we all learned in grade school, telescopes produce an upside down image - it's okay for astronomical use since upside down doesn't matter. If you want an image like you'd see in a pair of binoculars, get an image erector from a telescope accessory store to add to your eyepiece.
