Nikon or Tamron for D7100

Need some help in choosing a lens for the D7100.

I am looking at the Tamron 150-600 (because I would like to take shots of the moon and for upcoming eclipse photos as well) but I keep reading that it is possible that I could get a bad lens; so I am hesitant in getting it,  But I do like the fact that it is versatile.

But Nikon doesn't seem to give me this sort of choice (best that I can find is 200-500).

A straight 600 is just too expensive for my budget.

Suggestions?
