When I'm hooking the adaptor to the telescope and camera. Do I drop the eyepiece down the adaptor then hook it to the telescope or what. I notice if I hook the camera straight to the telescope I can't get the moon to focus. The manual doesn't tell me anything about hooking up a camera.

When I don't put the eyepiece in the adaptor the moon is out of focus. When I use the Eyepiece I can't seem to ge the whole moon in the picture. I'm using the 26mm (38x) 1.25" Eyepieces. With out the camera adaptor I get the whole moon plus with the 26mm eyepiece.

Can someone help shine some light on this for me.

Here is my set up

Canon 20D the telescope is
DS-2130ATS 5.0"/130mm Newtonian Reflector Telescope (1000mm f/7.7) with Motorized Altazimuth Mount, Autostar Computerized Hand Controller, 9.7mm (103x) and 26mm (38x) 1.25" Eyepieces, 6x30 Finderscope & Tripod you can find it on B&H
