No, you need an erecting lens and you can buy a variety of them to flip it right side up. This type of lens is used in only terrestrial telescopes and just to let you know, all astronomical telescopes show upside down images.

You need a 'spotting scope' adapter to right the image using a prism.

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.

Dopn't worry about upside down. All astronomical telescopes show images upside down. There is no up or down in space.

You may have what is called an "erecting" prism diagonal that turns the image right side up. Just Google "erecting prism diagonal".

This may also help you.

Upside down


All astronomical scopes have upside down images. There is no up or down in space.

You can buy what is called an "erecting prism" but it probably costs almost as much as the telescope, and is NOT needed top view the sky at night.

Upside down images on my telescope. Bought used -no manuel. What to do?


In a refractor images are upside down as with most telescopes. You need an image erector to create a normal correct R and L and Up and Down image. It is a lens which goes in front of the eyepiece to give a correct image.
