Astronomical telescopes produce an upside-down and reversed image (image is rotated 180 degrees from an upright position) since this doesn't matter when you are looking at things in the night sky. Accessories are available for rotating the image to an upright position, but most of those accessories do not work well with Newtonian style reflector telescopes such as the 114EQ reflector.

Yes all astronomical telescopes are upside down! No up or down in space!

You can buy an erecting diagonal for about $45 from Orion Telescopes to use for terrestrial viewing.

The telescope is designed for astronomical viewing. A 'terrestrial viewing' adapter would be needed to correct. Alternatively, use a diagonal adapter, and look in the downward direction. That will give a partial correction (the image inversion is why binoculars have prisms to correct the view)

SOURCE: Just came into a used tasco 302048 . Everything is upside down!!!

A telescope sees that way. you have to have a corrective lens to right the view. Its a physics thing about how light goes thru a lens and at the lens flips over upside down, you need another neutral lens to flip it right side up again. If you got the entire kit try another lens till you find the corrective lens.

SOURCE: everything is upside down on side eye piece

All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's completely normal. Nothing is wrong with the scope. For terrestril viewing you can buy an "erecting prism diagonal" which will turn the images right side up.

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.

I have a 102 mm Astro-Nova telescope 525 power by eduscience that shows everything upside down. Is there a retailer that sells the proper piece? I cannot get in touch w/ the eduscience website or phone...


All astronomical telescopes show the image upside down. It's tradition and there is a good technical reason for this, but you can get an "erecting prism" to make the image upright. This does not have to come from Edu-Science if your eyepieces are the standard size (1.25 inch outside diameter). If you search Amazon or eBay for "erecting prism" you will find a few available. You probably won't want to pay the prices though.

Everything is upside down on side eye piece. When viewing through the scope that's on the side of the telescope itself, everything is upside down. No matter which way it is turned, the same problem exists.

All astronomical telescopes are upside down. There is no up or down in space!

You can buy an erecting diagonal but it will cost more than the telescope is worth.

Google "erecting prism telescope" .

Everything is upside down thru the lens


Reflector telescopes are design for looking at stars, and in space there is no right side up. Try taking it out at night and look at the moon. Your telescope is performing just as it should, there are no problems with upside down views when looking at objects on the ground.

View is upside down


Yes-- all astronomical telescope are upside down--

NO --- UP or DOWN in outer space! Reversing the image just introduces more "glass" into the optical train.
