Hi Michael. I'm far from an expert, but I believe the 1000D is very similar to 450D, which I have used successfully with one cable as Humayun describes.

Worked nicely - could use Canon EOS utility software to set exposure length, deleay between images and no. of frames to take, preview window with Liveview makes focusing (on a bright star) quite easy, and download of images easy too if you wish to do at the scope. I suspect most if not all non-Canon software wouldn't work through the USB connection though - would be looking for serial ports for control. Probably not necessary unless you're trying to do mosaics or something else particularly tricky?
