Need some advice

Recommended Posts

I'm brand new to astronomy I've had my telescope roughly a month now really enjoying myself viewing all the things there are to see .I now want to start taking few pics through my telescope I set everything up last night clear sky's but what ever I tried I couldn't get Jupiter in my live view on my cam it was in the centre of my 25 mm lens but every time I took the lens out attached camera I was just met with black screen .Im here asking if I'm doing something wrong I took my scope out today after watching you tube about attaching camera to my scope , I managed to get a electric pylon in my lens swapped it attached camera worked out its in focus 3 half turns from fully in so I had it in my live view on my cam .So just asking if there's anything I'm missing at night time 



my equipment is a skywatcher 150 p goto alt/azm mount with a canon 1200d using a Barlow lens 

cheers for the help
