<p>Hi,</p><p>I have a 130mm&nbsp;Vixen Newtonian. I know that images will appear inverted through such scopes, but what I am actually getting when looking at terestrial objects like a light pole,&nbsp;is a tilted&nbsp;and inverted image. I mean by tilted is that I see the pole making a 45 degree angle with&nbsp;a vertical line.&nbsp;</p><p>What is the problem?&nbsp;</p><p>Thanks,</p><p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>I guess nothing is wrong in the assembly. I have not done anything on the main mirror or the lens since I bought it last year. I only change the eyepieces, their focus and calibrate the finder scope. </p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
