Question about Edu-Science (10166) Telescope
Astronomical telescopes normally 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.

Reflector telescopes are design for looking at stars, and in space there is no right side up. Try taking it out at night and look at the moon. Your telescope is performing just as it should, there are no problems with upside down views when looking at objects on the ground.

SOURCE: everything is upside down
Yes all astronomical telescopes are upside down! No up or down in space!
You can buy an erecting diagonal for about $45 from Orion Telescopes to use for terrestrial viewing.
