I use a 7D with a Helios 58mm f/2 lens attached via a DCA on the same scope. My technique is to locate the subject and prefocus the scope, attach the camera leaving the lens focused on infinity, adjust the balance of the setup, activate Live View and, if need be, use the 5x magnifier to aid precise focus. In bright conditions I find a magnifying loupe an advantage. I recommend using a remote release to minimise camera shake.
