Camera doesn't see anything while connected to telescope

2 years 9 months ago #513204 by Happy Hour
I bought a Esprit 100mm triplet refractor and I tried to connect my camera to it.  I have the correct t-adapter.  When I look through the spotter scope, I can see the stars clearly.  When I try taking a photo, you can barely see anything through the camera.  Then when I take the photo, nothing is in focus.  Because I couldn't focus it.  

Any ideas?
