I can't comment on the quality of the lens because I don't have it. But it'll probably perform like similar lenses of that period and focal length. Not to good wide open but okay stopped down to f8-f11.

It needs an m42 to Eos adaptor : http://www.heritagecameras.co.uk/adapter-for-m42-screw-lenses-on-mo...

You could probably get a cheaper adaptor for it on eBay tbh.

Edit : It'll look like a slightly wide angle FOV around 42mm I think.
They have put a Lot of info there in the ad. Yes, if you can find an M42 to EOS adapter, you can use it on the 600d.
I use a Nikon to EOS adapter so I can fit old manual Nikon lenses on my Canon 40d, and also an Olympus OM adapter for one of my old OM lenses. They cost less than $30, and do not need a glass element to focus properly. Other-make lenses with an adapter work only in manual mode, and the aperture stays stopped down all the time like a cine camera lens, they don't open up between shots to give you a bright viewfinder - which is what you want for animation.
Look on eBay UK and US for adapters. Search M42 and Pentax to Canon EOS. If you find one for Pentax, make sure it's the screw thread, not a bayonet fitting, I think Pentax changed over. I do know someone who used Pentax lenses on their Canon 7d for their film, but I think those were the bayonet mount lenses.
I can't tell you anything about the optical quality of the lens itself, apart from 28mm being a useful focal length.

Here is an adapter for 4 pounds, shipping included.
It does not list the 600d among the Canon models, but the mount is the same, so it will fit. I know another animator using a 600d with an adapter.

I use M42 lenses with my EOS 1000d and it works fine, I went for M42 lenses because I had a few before and they are cheap (alot of it is crap, but you can find good M42 lenses also).

Many M42 lenses have a pin that is pushed in to set the aperture, so you might have to glue this pin to make the lens work, it depends on the adapter you use, otherwise nothing happens when you turn the aperture ring on the lens.
