Look on eBay for a 1.25 lens by 25 MM These are simple rugged and inexpensive scopes. Their well deserved reputation comes from the large pile of junk accessories that are provided with them.
p.s. You asked this question 2 years ago. Set the scope out to the trash... and get a different hobby.
I don't understand about looking through the eyepiece holder. Is there an eyepiece in the holder? Without it you won't see anything. With it, you will see fuzzy blobs if it isn't in focus. Try using the least powerful eyepiece that you have to start with. Finding focus with the more powerful ones takes practice.
I also don't understand what the black felt you refer to is. Telescopes normally have a protective cap over the front opening, which is removed for viewing, but I have never seen one made of felt.
the eye piece that came with your scope is too powerful... look on ebay or a site that sells telescopes. also look at the size of your eye piece holder... my ds-114 came with a 0.96 holder, these are an odd size.. the other size is 1.25 and the eye pieces are much easier to find. try looking at the moon when it is cresent shaped and start from there. if you have the autostar, you have to go through a set up sequence to start. then the scope will track the objects that you select on the goto function. don't give up!
Here is the manual-- read it cover to cover-- http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/ETXtelescopes/ETX-90%20w-autostar%20man.pdf
1. Take off the lens cap
2. Put your lowest magnification eyepiece into the telescope on the TOP eyepiece port-- there is a lever on the side which rotates the diagonal mirror between the top and rear ports --- can you see light through the telescope? If not turn the lever.
3. During the day practice focusing on a distant object at least 100 yards away-- the image will be upside down -- this is not a problem-- no UP or Down in space.!
4. The lowest magnification eyepiece is the one with the LARGEST number on it.
Please you any hobby shop. All telscope mostly similer.all eyepiese is adjust with any telescope.
