The 2nd pictures is easy the best from a (composition) photography point of view IMHO.
The 1st make little sense in an astronomy competition...

For DX Kits, the single best len out of there is for sure the tokina 11-16 F/2.8 by far.
It's very sharp even wide-open, the vignetting is a problem only at 11-12, but you can easy correct it after; and the corner sharpness isn't a big deal in the night with a moving target.
For long exposure the difference between F/2.8 Vs F/4 is huge, it cost you 10-15 secs (you really want keep the time under 15 sec) or a step up from at least 800-1600 ISO with more noise less dynamic range.
