Upgrading from Kit Lens to ???? for beginner


First thank you in advance for reading this post or trying to help me out, thanks.

I bought my Canon 1000D or Rebel XS in January with the Kit lens but now I'm thinking of changing the lens, I'm looking for Telephoto zoom lens and seen a couple over Amazon with great prices.

As I am a beginner and has not enough expertise in lens I need your help.

Most of the one's I looked at were 70-300MM with F/4-5.6

Not only from Canon but also Sigma and Tamron




Which in your opinion provides sharp images as for my self using this lens will be for example the moon, nature, animal (not running ones) mmm stuff like that were I need the zoom, I will however use also a tripod for night shots as my hands are not steady enough.

so what do you recommend me to pick?

I have a limited budget of 200$

Thank you
