EF-S10-18mm. I enjoy mine for crowds, wide landscapes, birthday parties Also good for indoor video with the quiet STM focussing and IS. $159 might be the lowest I have seen ever.

EF-S 17-55mm USM IS F/2.8. Good upgrade from the kit lens. $439 is a solid price. I like this better than the Tamron (which I have) and Sigma equivalents. The USM is faster/quieter and it has continuous MF override (meaning you can grab the focus ring in AF mode and manually focus.)

Good price on m100 with kit lens. A bit higher than a few weeks ago but still a great deal on a cam with the 80d's DPAF and on chip ADC sensor.

I don't recommend things, for no reason.
If you have a remote interest in photography and a Canon camera DSLR body or a body that can adapt an EFs Canon lens, don't even thing and buy that Canon EF-S 10-18mm IS STM for $159. It is such a good deal for such a good and useful lens. Even if you missed this deal price, still buy that lens as the second part of statement remains valid, pricelessly! In short, don't think or learn how to deal for "Regret"...

Good price on the 10-18. I took that lens with me to Hawaii last spring. It performed well, especially given the price.

You want as wide an aperture as possible for astrophotography. F/2.8 or better.

Do you have full frame or crop? What body do you have? It really depends on what you want to take pictures of and how much you want to invest. You can get up to robotic arms that move your camera counter to the Earth's rotation to get super long exposures.

I own a Sony A7 (previously 5D and 5DII) with a Samyang 14mm 2.8 and I got beautiful pictures of the Milky Way in Maui last week. This set cost under $700 used pretty easily. Heck, I used my car as a tripod since I cheaped out on Check-in luggage and didn't bring a tripod.

If you need a lens for wide field astrophotography, then you should know better and your true best (Only) option (The gold standard of industry, irrespective of price tag) is Rokinon / Samyang 14mm F2.8
If that is too large for your taste and hand (You then obviously have a cropped sensor mirrorless) the alternative option is 12mm F2. First one is even better, if you can deal with weight and size. Reasons: 1- Best coma control among all. 2- Excellent sharpness, wide open/great contrast/least distortion for FL. 3- Fast enough. 4- If you are still reading this, then: Well look around and find yourself the most beautiful milky way picture and then check the fine prints to see what lens has create it. More likely than not, it's Rokinon 14mm F2.8

This lens is a wide angle that it better suited for landscape and videography. If you want solid portrait I would suggest the cheap 50mm or an 18-135mm for affordable all purposed.

Zoomed out images of the sky, you can probably get good results with the 10-18mm and using up to 30 second exposures with a decent tripod. Any longer than that and you would probably see blurred stars. But a good mount to track the stars zoomed out is the Skywatcher Star Adventurer. It's relatively cheap ($340), small, and goes between your tripod and the camera and has gears that will move at the same speed of the earth. It's a good quality name brand and many amateurs to experts use it for really wide shots of the sky.
