By somebody experience, is it there any way to see stars on the screen before taking the picture, obviously using a SLT camera?

Try pressing the depth of field preview button.  I am not sure if I have this correct but normally the viewfinder/LCD will "gain up" to try to give you a view of some some sort, a bit like night vision goggles but if you press the preview button it stops doing that and shows you what you will actually capture.

Whether that is any use anyway with astro photography like this I don't know.
