Tasco 302048 Eye piece correct??

Postby badangel00013 on Sat Sep 08, 2012 7:00 am

Hello all, please any HELP is appreciated. I recently bought a TASCO Telescope from Kijiji and of course me being a NEWBIE, I didn't know that the images would be upside down as I had bought this to see the waterfront from my apartment not the stars. So of course everything is UPSIDE DOWN.

Now I've done a lot of reading and what I keep hearing is that a Erecting Eyepiece will fix this issue. The eyepiece currently affixed says H12.5mm. I found a Erecting Eye piece on Ebay. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/360484636927?ssP ... 1497.l2649

It looks a lot larger then my eyepiece. But hey maybe this is what I need?

Yes, no ?


Thank you in advance for any help

You would actually require an erecting prism for a 1.25" eyepiece similar to one of these:
