I started with a Canon T3i or 600D nearly 4 years ago and still use it
It does a great job imaging planets and the moon
You should be able to pick one ( body only) up for under $600 and all you need is a T ring and adapter so it can be inserted into your focuser ( you do need a 2 focuser in your telescope )
Later when you have more experience, you can upgrade to a tracking Goto mount like a HEQ5 and use BYEOS software to capture your images with the same camera Canon T3i or 600D via a laptop near the mount ( BYEOS was developed by fellow Canadian Guylain Roche )
Recommend you watch YouTube videos of Trevor Jones from Astrobackyard ( another fellow Canadian ) who demonstrates how to use a DSLR for astrophotography
