Zwo 183mc Pro [cooled] - lenses?

I've recently bought a 183mc Pro [cooled], I have a couple of questions about using it as a standalone - ie not on scope: I was hoping to be able to use it with my Canon EOs lenses, can this be done using this:https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Adapter-for-Canon-EOS-objectice-lenses-to-ZWO-ASi-cameras-TSEOS...

Re: Allsky: My First Few Steps

As this week is the peak for the annual Draconid Meteor showers, thought I'd setup the timelapse for last night: There's a lot of activity, meteors? ISS, other satellites and an airplane.
