welcome to the slippery slopes of astrophotography.
All the above is good sage advice, so I won't go over that.
I have used a point and shoot everyday digital (Leica Digilux 4.3), and have moved to a Nikon D100 Digital SLR.
Is there a difference? Yep, the Nikon was cheaper!!!!.
Seriously though, the D100 allows the lens to be completely removed, and thus allows prime focus, of the moon, or whatever, especially DSO's.
If you are happy to try a learning curve, then get a point and shoot, like Ice's Nikon. It will certainly get your feet wet.
You can then go the whole hog later with a DSLR, and the 300D is probably the choice.
