Camera mount for my telescope? Astrophotography?

I have a Sony CyberShot Dsc-W1 Digital Camera, and I have a 102mm apex mak series telescope by orion. I want to be able to take pictures of what I see. I have seen the SteadyPix Universal Camera Mount. I am not sure if this is a good buy or not? What is my best bet for getting good images of what I see?

Hi. Bright objects like the Moon can be made by using afocul photography which is simply holding the camera up to a telescope lens and taking a shot. Attaching the camera to the focuser will give better (clearer) images. There are devices that allow a shot directly from the telescope that adapt the camera to the tube. Depends on what you want to spend and what you want to shoot.
