Got this from a friend. It is a Bushnell voyger model 78-9945. Why are the objects upside down is it something i'm not doing or did he assemble the unit wrong. HEEEEELLPP

Hi

Not to worry, upside down is completely normal for reflector telescopes and this model of the Voyager is just that. I do not recommend special image erecting prisms for reflectors - and it must be an image erecting prism designed specifically for reflectors - simply because it is not that hard to accommodate this feature in a reflector. Just takes a little experience.
