One other thing to watch out for when buying eyepieces, is that they come in 2 sizes. The most common size for amature telescopes is 1.25", but many low cost Asian made telescopes use .995". Measure your eyepiece holder first before ordering new ones.

Here is a beginner's instruction on different types of telescopes--
Yes I know the box said 650 power but that was a BIG BIG lie-- the smaller the number on the eyepiece the more magnification. Do NOT use the 2x barlow which doubles the normal eyepiece power in these small telescopes--- just way to much magnification. This is NOT necessary to view the sky at night. I almost NEVER go over 100 power in my 8 inch telescope-- once in a while maybe 175 power. Sp use the eyepiece with the largest number on it--- to practice focusing during the daytime.
Try to locate a local Astronomy club and attend one of their star parties and ask questions. You can bring the telescope with you and they will help you with it.

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).
