Canon 350D to WO 66mm

I am having a little problem with focus on the above setup. I have got the hardware and have the camera mounted to the scope but cant get it to focus, what am I missing ?
The equipment is WO 66Semi APO witha GSO 2" Quartz diagonal a T2 adaptor and the T ring. Ican put an EP in and achieve focus but when I connect the camera no way. Is there something else I should be using?

Cannot connect the camera without it in place. The camera adaptor wont go into the back of the scope.

you should be able to unscrew the end section of the focuser and attach your t-adapter straight to the thread.

I tried that but I may have the wrong adaptors because it wont screw on to the back of the scope.

the thread is a standard SCT thread so it should take a 2" T-adapter as far as l know.

OK its obvious that I have the wrong adaptor for the camera to scope. I bought them from Bintel and I think I have ordered the wrong ones after advice as to what I needed.
Back to the drawing board.

Adrian I'd say you'll need an extension tube in place of the diagonal.
I did a quick search and found this link.
Is this the scope you're talking about?

Here's the WO page:

Alternatively Bintel have extension tubes that may suit your setup.
