Craig, I started off with a Pentax KD100 which didn't have Live View, however I did see the Moon and Jupiter with someone else's setup with Canon Live View.

He only used Live View for focusing before taking an image, but I was impressed with the Moon video, Jupiter was a bit small and you couldn't see much detail like you would with a high power eyepiece.

Remember at prime focus you are at the scopes lowest magnification, unless you connect the camera behind an eyepiece (which has its own set of issues).

Regards
Bill
