Hi Peter, the best way to use your Canon DSLR for planetary is to connect it to a laptop via the USB port and record the LiveView stream at 5x zoom using a program like BackyardEOS.

You can see the details on how (and why) to do it here.

You can download a 30 day trial version of BackyardEOS here, it's well worth the $35.

Oh, and PIPP will convert the video file for you, but you will get far better results using the LiveView stream (this is how I started).
