all telescopes are set up this way, but binoculars are what i prefer i own a pair of 15x70. The images are upright. you can view Moon, Jupiter, Venus, Comets, Orion nebula, Andromeda galaxy, Space shuttle, Space station, and my favorite is trying to find the "iridium Satellite flares". go to the link above and i can get you in easy..(without registering) get to the home page and click on "from data base" scroll down to find your country,Click on that, then type in your city or one nearby and then "submit", page click on the highlighted city and then your lat and long are now entered and then go back to home page and click on "next 24 hrs", then click on the highlighted ("time" eg: 19:54:44") and it will show you how close you will be from the flare..then click on the "Altitude" or "Azmith" highlights and it will teach you how to spot these...then go back to home page and click on "what time is it" and synchronize your watch to this time and within +or- a couple seconds you look in the sky and you'll see a phenomenal sight, if its a -9 that will be brighter than Venus...but they only last for about 5 to 7 seconds.

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.

Hi All, I have brought a Black TwinStar GIANT 6" MIRROR W TRIPOD -Reflector Telescope EQ Mount. I have successfully able to assemble every thing except the eye piece settings. could any one please help...

The eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it is your lowest magnification.

Put the eyepiece into the focuser and practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. The image will be upside down. NOTHING is wrong. All astronomical telescopes show upside down images.

You will also need to learn how to polar align the EQ mount. Read my tips on my profile page.

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 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.

Everything is upside down. The larger eye piece looks foggy.

The image is often 'upside down' in telescopes. You can correct this with an auxiliary lens to make the image the right way up. It is very awkward traversing the sky backwards and upside down. If the larger eyepiece looks foggy then first clean the outside of each lens with a lens cloth or isopropyl alcohol and a cotton bud or clean and lint free cloth. If this does not solve the problem this means that some moisture has got into the lens housing and the only way to get rid of it is to either remove a lens or to drill a small hole in the side of the housing and then gently heating the lens near a radiator until the moisture has disappeared and then seal up the hole with a blob of epoxy resin or sealing mastic or gaffa tape.

At the bottom of the eye piece there is a little slider than you can move up and down to adjust the focus. That should fix your problem if not then you are not looking into the eye piece close enough make sure your eye is pressed up against the little rubber pad and then adjust the focus.

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!

Finderscope image upside down & not focused if viewing past 100 yards

The upside down image is normal for astronomical telescopes. The finder usually is a fixed focus, but it can be altered for various eye types, by rotating the objective lens for focus - the cell should move in or out on fine threads.

Won't shut off after shredding.

I FIXED MINE!!! Hey folks same problem AS1018CD would not shut off. CURE: Take apart and clean electronic eye. PROCEDURE: 1. Unplug. 2.  Remove shredder and turn upside down. 3. Remove 6 phillips head screws on back of unit ( 1 is under sticker in middle peel back sticker to access screw. 4. Carefully separate unit. 5. Pull off shredder piece. It is a snug rubber grommet fit and just lifts off( gears everything comes off as one piece. 6. Electric Eye is exposed remove screw holding in and gently slide out and wipe clean. Do both sides. While apart clear all debris and wipe entire unit as clean as you can. Put gear assembly back on grommets. Put top and bottom back together. Replace screws. Plug in. FIXED :-)
