Does it make a difference to your viewing if you have a bigger length telescope or a smaller one

Focal length not physical length would better answer your question. Shorter focal length scopes have a lower power but wider view per size of eyepiece.
Tasco telescopes are basically junk telescopes. Any telescope from Celestron, Meade, Orion, Explore Scientific or Televue (to name the more popular) will give you a superior view compared to the Tasco.
A 60mm scope has the maximum magnification of 225x (under perfect sky conditions. I suggest a small, short tube reflector in the 4 inch range. They are lightweight, have much more light gathering power (more important than magnification) and easy to set up.

I have a makusutove 150 1800 telescope and I cant seem to get it to focus correctly - it seems as though the mirrors are focussing the light behind the viewing lens. I can get a focussed image if I hold...

You do not have enough BACK-FOCUS, you need an extension tube for the focuser like this one:

Buy the correct size for the focuser hole--

A friend of mine just purchased a used Polaris 60EQ-D telescope and asked if it can be used for terrestrial viewing. Are there any types of lens adapters to flip the view to right side up?

Yes they are called "erecting diagonal" like this one:*25-inch-45-deg-orion-correct-image-prism-telescope-diagonal

Why is my view upsidedown?

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

When viewing everything is upside down.

Yes, all astronomical telescopes show images upside down. There is no up or down in space.

Viewing right side up

ALL astronomical telescopes are upside down--- no up or down in space!

You can buy an "erecting" diagonal which will invert the image for terrestrial viewing--

Telescope venture rx9 view blocked

I have this same issue. A star or planet is vlocked by a circle with 3 prongs - like the mirror holder in the tube.

The telescope is designed for astronomical viewing. A 'terrestrial viewing' adapter would be needed to correct. Alternatively, use a diagonal adapter, and look in the downward direction. That will give a partial correction (the image inversion is why binoculars have prisms to correct the view)

Lesser viewing area in my telescope

All telescopes have small fields of view-- even what is called a "rich field scope" has only about 2 degrees of view. Most scopes only have about 1 degree of view.

The key component is a short tube and a fast mirror of F4.5 or faster.

My telescope

Try the largest eyepiece you have (20mm, 25mm) for a wide field of view. Of you try to view the moon with too much power (smaller mm eyepieces) it will always come out blurry - too close for such magnification.
