  1. Hello everyone I've just bought my first telescope, a 10 inch Dobsonian, Saxon brand (same as Skywatcher). In daylight I've collimated it with a laser collimator. Also in delight I've centred the finderscope on a house on the horizon (probably 5 km away). The image is inverted and the left side appears on the right. I understand that's normal. The house is also centred in the eyepiece and the view is inverted and left appears right, as with the finder scope. BUT the horizon is at about a 60 degree angle ( see pdf sketch attached). Is this normal? Or am I doing something wrong? Or is there a problem with the telescope? Many thanks in advance Susan telescope views25082020_2.pdf
