All astronomical telescopes provide an upside down view. To use it for terrestrial viewing buy an erect image prism or erect image eyepiece

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

Hey! Whey mirror


You mean everything is upside down. All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's how they work. Nothing is wrong with your telescope. Read my Frequently Asked Questions-- TIP on my profile page.

Image upside down


Hi, this is a common "problem" for astronomical telescopes. Same with my Meade 3" refractor and spotter. It is actually a design 'feature' not broken.

The issue is that most astronomical telescopes naturally show images upside down, or some combination of upside down and left-right.
(Astronomers usually don't care, because space has no up or down.)
It is just the way optics work when lenses or mirrors bounce and bend light. (And since the professional astronomer wants the most light and most direct image, they usually don't want extra devices just to make it right-side up.)

Reason that binoculars don't do that , is they employ special internal prisms to get the image back right-side up.

Easiest solution for astronomical telescope is to buy what is called a "star-diagonal" or "image-erector prism". These will usually make the image look normal for us earth-based folks.

I do not know what exact type your Meade 227 telescope is, but the spotter scope is most likely a simple refractor. So it MAY be possible to install a star diagonal onto it. Or might not. Depends on the exact spotter scope design.
Another option may be able to buy a replacement spotter scope that is designed for correcting image orientation.

Bushmaster 8 inch reflector fine mirror scratches


No they cannot be removed. The mirror would need to be recoated, which is too expensive for your scope.

However, tiny scratches probably will not affect your view through the telescope. (maybe)

Problems with the ercecting lens


Did you put the eyepiece into the diagonal? ------- after you put the diagonal into the telescope. Erecting lens is a DIAGONAL by the way. "erecting diagonal"

Inverted image


All images in astronomical telescopes are upside down and reversed-- this is normal. There is no up or down in space. Reversing the image just adds more GLASS to the light path.

The same problem as the one I've just read about.........


I have a Bushnell Voyager with Sky Tour 79-9960 (or 9970...not sure which) and I have an instruction manual.
How do I use this telescope?!!! The directions that came with it...leave alot to be desired.
