What's the best way to connect an ASI071MC Pro to a Canon EOS full frame lens?  A tripod mount and slide-in filter capability would be nice.  I know ZWO has a EOS-T2 adapter but I am looking for something a little better.  I know Starizona makes one but I have never seen a review.

Jim, check out the ASCOM Canon Lens Controller Mark II from astromechanics.org.

 

If you have any questions regarding lens compatibility, Sergey is very responsive via email (Russia hours).

Agreed; Sergey is really helpful.  They are weeks away from having an EOS to ASI6200 lens controller.

 

All the best,

 

Kevin
