Best CCD camera under $500

OK I'm making my x-mas list and I would really like a Canon D60 but $1200 is way to much to ask for. So can anyone recommend a good CCD camera under $500? I would like it for both astrophotography and family pictures.
Thanks

I recently bought a Olympus C2100UZ for arround $500 second hand. It has a 10x optical zoom and is stabilized. I successfully took pictures of the moon right out of the hand! And it is very good for the planets (coupled to scope) too.
