Quote:So, David, what convention do you use? Many times I simply orient it as seen at the eyepiece. But, south-up is becoming my norm (after one rogue posting on ALPO and being corrected for it.) Preceding is as seen, either left or right.
Still, something unnatural bugs me about reversing an image from how we observed it. Maybe it's an acquired taste.
