I am looking for recommendations for a compact fixed lens digital
camera.  I plan to use it for both general photography and simple
amateur astronomy use (mostly with a small 60 mm refractor and the
afocal method).  Here are my requirements, in no particular order:

1) fixed lens, i.e. no reflex

2) not out of production

3) list price below 400 EUR

4) 5/6-megapixel or more

5) support for USB storage, i.e. the possibility of accessing the
   camera as an external USB disk for image transfer to a PC

6) support for SD or CF II memory cards

7) self-timer and/or remote shutter operation

8) availability of a raw image format, or a lossless image format such
   as TIFF

9) availability of manual settings, at least for exposure time

10) maximum manual exposure time of at least 5-10 seconds

I consider my question answered if I get at least 2 camera
recommendations that match ALL the above requirements.  By
recommendation I mean that I am provided with:

1) manufacturer name and complete camera model name

2) a link to the manufacturer's web site with full technical
   specifications of the recommended model
