Astrophotography newbie question

Astrophotography newbie question

So I just purchased a Panasonic G7 which is a micro 4 3 camera and it came with the kit lens 14-42mm. Super new but learning quickly. I wanna be able to take night lapses and astrophotography but do you think its possible with this lens and if not what do you guys suggest. I've been messing with the exposure settings around my apartment but the results came out grainy. Maybe it was the lights around that probably didn't help. Open to any resources or advice you guys can provide (maybe even tips on finding out the right settings, I try to use manual as much as I can)
