Lenses for A6300


I'm a non-professional, mirrorless virgin, looking for a travel mirrorless for (1) general photography (people, city streets, nature) and (2) night sky photography (stars).

After weeks of head-spinning research, I decide to purchase A6300. But now I'm confused with the lenses and tripod. My questions are:

- Do I really need lenses with image stabilization?

- Do I really need to purchase separate lenses for both purposes or can I get away with only a wide-angle lens? (What actually will happen if I take everyday photos with a wide-angle lens?)

- What are the best lenses (medium-range budget) that can make up for the weakness of A6300? FYI, the reason why I upgrade from pocket camera to mirrorless is because of my Sony pocket camera's poor performance at low-light environment (poor at night cityscape, big loser at night sky)

- Is there a durable, good-for-all-purposes tripod for A6300? When I consider that I will carry around the tripod all day, I surely want a light one. But many people say a tripod for night sky photography should be heavy and not made from metal.
