Hi chrisssssssssssssssssssssssss (sorry, had to do it Wink ),
Yes, The black moor x bubble eye has been done as has probably every conceivable combination possible. The goldfish is probably the most hybridized fish in the world, with many collectors completely devoting their entire lifetimes to creating new (and for the most part unhealthy) strains.
I personally (just my opinion) feel a little sad when I see fish bred to such a state that they can hardly swim because their fins have either been eliminated or over exaggerated. In the case of bubble and or telescope eyes, the quest for exaggerated cosmetic appearances often lead to horrible health problems for the fish (easily burst eye sacs).
Breeding goldfish for new traits is also a pretty ruthless proposition. Breeders cull (kill) thousands of offspring for every one or two promising juveniles. Simply crossing two traits will not neccisarily give you the same results each time.
Probably the best thing a new breeder could do (just my opinion again) would be to select strong and/or wild genes and return the species to its original healthy state.
Not trying to dissuade you from exploring your options but you could do much more good than to further the novelty aspect of goldfish breeding.
Probably a bigger answer than you were anticipating Wink
No offense meant.
Good luck!
