I had the DSLR II before selling it. It will function as good as the eyepiece you have in it. I had constant problems with fuzzy edges and loss of light when using it, especially with the moon, Jupiter and Saturn. I did get a few good shots of M42 but that was about it. I am back to taking shots at prime and am much happier about it.
If you intend to use the DSLR adapter on a refractor, don't, because you will be unable to bring the scope into focus due to the added length with the adapter and camera.
The DSLR adapter is way over priced, especially for the problems that come with it. If you really want to try one anyway, look to find one in the $75 to 100 range here, Astromart, Ebay, etc.
Hope this helps a little.
