Astronomical telescopes usually show an upside down image. There is a good reason for this- erecting the image needs more bits of glass in the light path, which reduces the amount of light and increases aberrations. Even if this is only slight, astronomers prefer to avoid it, and they don't really care which way up the Moon or Jupiter appear.

It is possible to fit an erecting prism or eyepiece to most astronomical telescopes, and some of them come with one. It sounds like you have a partially erecting diagonal fitted- it is flipping the image upright but giving a mirror image side to side.

If you wish to use a telescope for terrestrial objects then you will be better off with a "spotting scope" which is designed to present the image in the orientation you expect.

Can someone explain the mercury retrograde to me?

No planet actually goes backwards. But viewed from the earth in the horoscope it does appear to do so.
When Mercury is going backwards astrological speaking, things, associated with communication running smoothly don't happen. So your train will be delayed, due to say a strike. Letters will go missing. And in human terms, you will not understand something which on most days you would. Especially if you have a strong Mercury in your birth chart or where born under a sign rulled by Mercury

The letters on the facebook login page are huge how do i get back to regular size letters

My name is Mace and I'm here to help.

The fonts or letters or the whole page you may have accidentally zoom in. It is very simple to return the page to its regular size.
Press and hold down the CTRL button in your keyboard while pressing a few times the the minus ( - ) sign in the number pads. Pressing the plus ( + ) sign will make your page bigger.

You can also try
Press and hold down CTRL button while you scroll forward or backward the wheel in your mouse to make it bigger or smaller.

Hope this answer will help you.

Which cable is positive and which is negative as I have lost my crocadile clips that are red and black. Both portions of the cable that lead to the battery are black, one cable having a white stripe. It is...

Chances are the cable with the white stripe is the positive.

However, it would be best to check with a volt meter. Some auto parts stores will check it for you. If you have one or can borrow one and want to check for yourself, set the meter to DC volts (some autorange, some don't). Turn the charger on. Place the leads across the two cables and if the meter is analog, the needle will deflect, usually to the right and show the voltage. If you have it backwards, the needle will move, usually to the left and bounce several times. If it's backwards don't leave the leads connected too long or you might damage the meter.

If the meter is digital and you have connected it correctly, the meter will show a voltage and may have a plus sign in front of the reading. If you connected it backwards, there will be a minus sign in front of the reading.

Pages scanned are backwards (read right to left and all letters are if holding up to the light and trying to read from the backside)

Pls check if the 'mirror' option is on in the software setting. The scanner 'reads' normal way always.

Gears won't go to correct letter but work?

you can remove the instrument cluster trim and see where the selector needle is,below that you will see a string or a wire that moves it when you move the gear shift,i believe there is an adjustment for this on the steering column in the area of the selector needle.
