Upside down in Astronomy

I just saw, on page 81 of the Nov. 2004 issue of Astronomy Magazine, a Televue mounted on an upside down cradle of a Gibraltar mount. The picture looks to be of an older telescope. Is this a "classic" wrong picture or a new one? The magazine article was a retrospective of the amature astronomy hobby so I presume this is a vintage picture. Does anyone here have more on this?
