Question about Meade TeleStar DS-2114ATSA Telescope
the image in your telescope is suposed to be upside down (you'll find it's back to front too!). The reason for this is to get as much light to the eye as possible, the more lenses/mirrors the light has to go through/reflect off, the greater the light loss, and in astronomy you need all the light you can get.
For terestrial viewing, you can purchase, quite cheeply, an image erecting adaptor. This will make your image the right way up. For the best terestrial viewing, you can still purchase prismatic adaptors. Best bet would be ebay.
If I can be of any further help, don't hesitate
