What you need is a camera made for IR imagery.
Sony makes the exview super HAD chip which can see in IR with out IR diode assistance.
If you search on ebay for exview, HAD or 0.05 Lux you will find CCTV cameras.
They exceed the camera capabilities of your standard consumer camcorder.
You will basically be able to see the night sky just as if you were looking at it with your eye, but with the added IR vision as well.
You can buy these for $75-$300 depending on the resolution.
