Puzzled by Postion of AR12282

 The attached drawing shows what I'm seeing when view the sun with my Mead ETX 125 (30mm EP) and  the built in diagonal.

 The Meade should flip East and West, but not North and South. But what I'm seeing is AR12282  in area 3 (lower left) when it should be in area 1 (upper left)?

 

 

Any ideas what's going on?

Hi David,

Perhaps plot out the StonyHurst disk for today and notice the orientation for your UT:

That might help with the East-West orienation of the sunspots.
