SEE this and look at the picture of the Dobsonian reflector. Notice the eyepiece and focuser is on the FRONT of the telescope. The mirror is the BOTTOM of the telescope. http://www.texasastro.org/telescope.php
You will not find a manual for that telescope. However Meade maintains a web site for their telescope manuals. Look under REFRACTOR or REFLECTOR for one similar to your telescope. They all go together in a similar fashion.
The view through an astronomical telescope is always upside down. When your looking at stars and planets, it makes no difference. If you want terrestrial view, get spotting scope - that's not what reflectors are for. If you still insiste on view right side up, you'll have to buy and inverting eyepiece or adapter and probably spend more than you paid for the scope.
In a refractor images are upside down as with most telescopes. You need an image erector to create a normal correct R and L and Up and Down image. It is a lens which goes in front of the eyepiece to give a correct image.
