Using a Reflector Telescope

Look through the eyepiece and focus the image with the focus knob. To target, point it at whatever it is you are trying to see.

A reflector type telescope always inverts the image, unless of course you are using it for star gazing, then it doesn't matter. However, if you are using it to view a planet you must remember you are looking at the object upside down, unless of course you have a correcting prism installed in your eye piece holder.
