All astronomical telescope show upside down images. It's normal, nothing is wrong with your scope. You can buy an "erecting prism" diagonal for terrestrial viewing.

Why is everything upside down when looking in the simmons telescope


Most "astronomical" telescopes do invert. You can add an inverting mirror between the telescope and eyepiece, like this one:

You'll get rightside up, but left/right backwards images.

Astronomical telescopes always show the view upside down. Erect image accessories are available for terrestrial viewing if desired but reduces contrast in astronomical applications.

I look through my 6mm vivitar lens and the view is almost upside down?


All astronomical telescopes show upside down and or inverted images-- it's completely normal. To use this for terrestrial viewing (klijke a spotting scope) you will need to buy the correct size erecting prism diagonal similar to this one:

Viewfinder views things backwards


Yes, most finder scopes show upside down images, it's completely normal.

This is an astronomical telescope. Even the main tube shows upside down images unless you use what is called an "erecting prism" for terrestrial viewing.

Everything in telescope is backwards


These are normal for an astronomical telescope. You can get erector prisms to fix it for terrestrial use - but astronomers just live with it.

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)
