Question about Meade Infinity 114EQ-DH Telescope
When you look though the telescope everything is upside down
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)

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.

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.
