Default Astrophotography

Hi,
I have just purchased a Canon Powershot SX1 IS camera and want to take up astrophotography. So far I have been taking alot of moon shots which have shown up quite a lot of detail, but I want closer, more detailed shots. This camera has not got a threaded lens so I know my options will be pretty limited, but can anyone help me with any equipment ideas?
Cheers!

There's a short primer here:

You'll also need to search of information on "digiscoping", which is the jargon term for mounting a fixed lens camera to the eyepiece of a telescope.
