No -- that scope is sold by Toys R Us-- no manuals exist anywhere on the internet. You can buy eyepieces from various on-line retailers-- measure the hole in the focuser. Eyepieces come in 3 different sizes--- .965 inch, 1.25 inch, and 2 inch.
Your scope either takes-- .965 or 1.25 inch eye[pieces-- buy the correct size. Here are two retailers:
By the way-- we receive more complaints about that brand of telescope than just about any other brand. It is being sold by a toy store.
Sorry about Meade's responses, but their website has a download section for the telescope manuals - you may not find one that matches exactly, as they produce hundreds of models, but one that is close should suffice. As for eyepieces, there are several good vendors out there; Orion Telescopes, Meridian etc. Just check the barrel size; either .965" (Japanese standard) or 1.25" (American standard).
eye pieces are interchangeable and you will want a few of them for different magnifications. The previous owner probably got a new scope and kept them for that. Here's where I go for lens' in Toronto Canada.
The rule of thumb is cheaper eyepieces are ok for the low magnification 35mm-20mm but as you get to higher magnification a better eyepiece will make more of a difference. How expensive is up to you and how serious you are into this. I think my better lens was a used tele-vue for $80
