Q: While viewing a land-based object, will it appear upside-down?
A: When viewed through the eyepiece and the diagonal, the images will be right side up.
Q: Does this telescope come with a case? If so, is it weatherproof?
A: The Zhumell Zenith 60x600 Telescope comes in a water-resistant carrying case.
Q: What is the difference between a refractor and a regular telescope? Would this be a good telescope for an 8 year old?
A: A refractor is one kind of telescope. In fact, it's the type of telescope most are familiar with - the kind that uses lenses to gather light, focus it, and render an image. Other types are reflectors, which use mirrors to accomplish the same thing, and catadioptrics, which use both lenses and mirrors. The Zenith is a great scope for a child - It's small, light, and easy-to-use but actually quite powerful.
