I wouldn’t say that at all...folk put out some excellent images from DSLRs and OSC astro cameras.

Cooling helps (in summer), as does a dark sky to begin with, fast scope...there’s no single thing that leads to great images.

What I did (after moving to QLD) was to mod my 1100D, first to remove the IR-cut filter and later to add a cold finger. I would probably be less inclined to do it to a nice 700D like yours, but a used 1100D body can be picked up fairly cheaply if you are into experimentation.
