All astronomical telescopes have upside down images -- it' s normal. To erect the image would require more glass which would dim already faint sky objects.

You can buy an "erecting prism" for terrestrial viewing. Read my frequently asked questions TIP on my profile page.

Why would the images be upside down


All astronomical telescopes show the image upside down. For terrestrial use, you need a erect image prism.

How do I fix the upside down problem on a tasco telescope


All astronomical telescopes have upside down images. Nothing is wrong with the scope.

NO up or down in outer space.

For terrestrial viewing you can buy an "erecting prism" diagonal like this one--

The manual will only have assembly instructions. It will not tell you how to use the scope or how to find objects in the night sky. Read my TIPS on my profile page-- a free monthly star chart is available here:

Astronomical telescopes ALWAYS show images upside down. There is no up or down in space!

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Go outside in the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

You do realize that you bought a 60mm telescope. Not much bigger than your normal pair of 10x50mm binoculars.

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


the scope is made for both terrestrial viewing and astronomical. In order to see terrestrially upright, you need an inverting STAR DIAGONAL. The eyepiece will do nothing for inverting the image. you might have 2 diagonals in the kit that came wih the scope. the diagonal is the part that fits into the scope. then you place the eyepiece in the diagonal. if you have 2 diagonals , one is a 90 degree angle,(astronomical) and one is a 45 degree angle, (terrestrial). the eyepieces change the magnification of the image. the bigger the number (9mm, 20mm, 26mm,) the smaller the image. the smaller the number , the bigger the image gets. the number is inverse of the image. Hope this helps.

Just bought a cheap, used Tasco telescope. Images


I'm not sure what type of telescope this is (refractor, reflector, etc.) but it's normal for most telescopes to have inverted images. There is no up or down in space so it doesn't really matter when you view an astronomical object. You just want to keep that in mind if you use a moon map so that you can get the correct orientation. However, you can get moon maps with inverted images.

If you wish to view land or terrestrial objects you can purchase an image erecting prism to turn everything right side up. Depending on the telescope it may reverse the images from left to right when it does this.

I hope this helps.

Eye piece shows upside down


Its meant to be upside down its a newtonian reflector. If you want it to be right way up you will have to buy a diagonal eye piece or glue your shoes to the roof!
