Sky watcher star travel 102 problems

Hi guys , I have just purchased this telescope and it's the first one I have had. I know nothing about astronomy only I wanted to buy one to attach my Slr to it to get some good photos. I have seen the moon close up but I am having problems seeing any stars as when you look through the viewfinder nothing appears to be in line through the scope . There is no red dot finder for alignment and probably don't really know what I am suppose to be doing . I have tried reading the set up guide and have put in the location coordinates but am struggling to find 2 stars for alignment as I cannot see anything through the telescope . Please help , thanks
