Vixen R130Sf — backwards scope?

Hi all,

Just set up my scope (first time) and it appeared that the tube was mounted the wrong way around. I unscrewed it from the two metal clamps and flipped it. Now it seems like it’s in the right position on the Porta II mount but I’m wondering what the correct position is from right to left (i.e., 9 o’clock or 12 o’clock) with respect to the position of the eyepiece? Does that make sense?
