As long as you are using an eyepiece that is 1.25" diameter, and yes you can get an eyepiece that is 7mm or so; however, for a 60mm that might be too much. If you have a shorty Barlow rather than a long type barlow, then all you need is a long focal EP like a 25/26mm and a 18/17mm. That's it. By using those two EP's and a shorty barlow you'll have in essence 4 EP's. That's all you're going to need to see anything the scope is worthy of doing. Remember this: Use EP's that have a 1.25" barrel, use a shorty barlow, and 26/25mm and a 18/17mm EP. Wouldn't hurt to have a lunar filter. Saves on the eyeballs. Good Luck!
