Funny you mention that.
It's been that way with astronomical telescopes since I was a kid, and that was a long time ago. I think the thinking was that adding another lens to reverse the image would not increase the magnification, and since you're looking at stars, it really doesn't matter if they are upside down.
All eyepieces go into the FOCUSER end of the telescope. You never said if this is a REFRACTOR or a REFLECTOR style telescope.
On a refractor you have a lens in the front and the focuser in the back.
On a reflector the focuser is on the SIDE of the telescope near the front end.
The diagonal goes in first --- and the eyepiece goes into the diagonal -- if this is a refractor style telescope. Here is a picture of the DIAGONAL. http://www.telescope.com/control/accessories/telescope-diagonals/1*25-inch-orion-enhanced-mirror-star-telescope-diagonal
This is a small refractor style telescope. You will not find a manual for that telescope. However MEADE telescopes maintains a web site for their REFRACTOR telescopes. They all assemble and are used the same way.
Look under the REFRACTOR heading on this web site for a manual similar to your telescope: http://www.meade.com/manuals/index.html
