Has anyone used the ASI1600MM Pro with a Canon DSLR lens? I'll be flying to Colorado in April and I thought it would be interesting to try some Milky Way shots with it. I know ZWO sells an adapter - just looking for someone with some actual experience using it.

ZWO DOES sell an adapter (well 2 different ones actually, one for using with the filter wheel, and one without).  However the quality of these adapters isn't great, as they don't old the lens very rigidly and are prone to potential tilt issues.  I have heard really good things about the Geoptik Canon EF adapter though. I know that I have seen a few people that image with this camera using canon lenses, so hopefully one of them can chime in and give you better advice than I am able to.
