He was asking for the MOON and the planets (which should be skipped due to his budget, but that was already mentioned). And the for the moon you don't really need a tracking mount (otherwise I'm a genius doing it without  ). I agree that a tracking mount is pretty helpful and important for deep(er) astro photography, but starting with the moon - and probably a 400mm lens - you don't really need one.

Taken with 100-400/4.5-5.6 plus 2x TC on FF and without a tracker. Stack of many (100-200) images, AutoStakkert! and RegiStax.
