Hi Gus, try the moon first since it's bright. Then give the bright planets a try. You may need to adjust some camera settings on manual for best results.

For stars you will need a digital SLR and tracking. It gets expensive and a lot more complicated from there.

If you have a look at the deep sky and solar system sections of the forum, a lot of people mention the type of equipment they are using to take the photos to give you an idea.
