Experience of using a Canon 600D / 1200D with ekos

Hi folks,

I am in the market for either a Canon 600d / 1200d and am I keen to understand how folks find using either of those with ekos. My current setup is Astroberry on a Pi 4. Im intrigued by the level of control it gives you. I had seen gphoto can be used to control it. Just want to confirm folks can actually manage the camera via ekos, setting ISO, exposure times, live preview etc.

Any insight would be very much appreciated.

I have 600D and it works well. However, why don't you just go for a dedicated astro camera? It's a lot less headache than a DSLR.

It's really down to budget at the moment. I have a ASI 224MC which I like, but nothing to control a guide scope. So id look to use the 224MC as a guide camera and then the 600D or 1200D as the main camera. Had looked into maybe just using a ASI120MM as a guide camera and stick with 224MC, but I would be limited in what targets I can photograph.
