I've the same S5600 and the high ISOs are as noisy as and kill the shots, stacking pics at lower ISOs works somewhat better
As Astroman said, their a good camera for general use but their very limited for astro, 15 secs is the maximum available for exposures.

This is a stack of 5 of the comet with no other processing at ISO 400, still too noisy.
