Hey guys I'm recently in the market for a new camera.. I really want a nice DSLR, but I don't know if I can spend nearly 800 bucks atm for a camera.

So, my question is are there any point and shoot cameras that are capable of photographing star fields/the milky way?

I'm going nuts doing searches today trying to find any information on point and shoots and photographing the stars...Which leads me to believe it's probably not something people are able to do, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask.

Thanks

Quick search of someone taking pic of milky way with a Canon EOS 1000d/XS + kit lens. Amazon has this camera on sale for $456 USD.

I'd imagine any compact P&S would be in similar price range.

awesome, thanks for the info - i remember seeing that picture before too now.

One thing I didn't mention was my reason for leaning toward a P&S(something like power shot sx20) is that video is a big factor for me too.

So, I guess my real question would be is there something in the range of Lumix DMC-TZ7/ZS3 or Power shot SX20 that is capable of photos like that?
