Question about Tasco Optics
All astronomical telescopes have upside down images. Nothing is wrong with the scope.
NO up or down in outer space.
For terrestrial viewing you can buy an "erecting prism" diagonal like this one--

A telescope sees that way. you have to have a corrective lens to right the view. Its a physics thing about how light goes thru a lens and at the lens flips over upside down, you need another neutral lens to flip it right side up again. If you got the entire kit try another lens till you find the corrective lens.

I'm not sure what type of telescope this is (refractor, reflector, etc.) but it's normal for most telescopes to have inverted images. There is no up or down in space so it doesn't really matter when you view an astronomical object. You just want to keep that in mind if you use a moon map so that you can get the correct orientation. However, you can get moon maps with inverted images.
If you wish to view land or terrestrial objects you can purchase an image erecting prism to turn everything right side up. Depending on the telescope it may reverse the images from left to right when it does this.
I hope this helps.

All astronomical telescopes have upside down images -- it' s normal. To erect the image would require more glass which would dim already faint sky objects.
