Get a larger zoom lens for moon pics and astrophotography. Otherwise, you seem to grasp the fundamentals. Not a groundbreaking photo, but you have potential.

Thank you for the advice. I am kind of new in photography

Don't listen to him, the 18-135 is an excellent first lens.
Go out shooting as much as you can, try different angles, find pleasing compositions, see if something leads to your subject or tells a story.
Don't go into hard astrophotography just yet, it is an endless money sinkhole. Just go out and shoot what you see, what you want to show, tell your stories through your pictures.

No mate, it's an acceptable first lens.

Gear definitely isn't the end-all, be all of photography, a good photographer can get excellent images out of shit gear, and a new photographer won't really get a ton of benefit (other than being able to use a larger aperture) from better lenses, but don't describe what's a fairly crappy lens as "excellent" in any context. It sets the wrong kind of expectations and can lead to a shitton of frustration in newer shooters who think that they're the ones that's fucking up when they can't get more sharpness out of a lens that just can't give it to them, they get their techniques for autofocus down and it keeps missing focus (or just being slow to focus) and the like.
To op:
It's fine as a beginner lens. It'll do. Yes, go out and shoot and think about compositions and experiment and learn. At some point in this process you'll figure out what you like/don't like about that lens and that'll help you figure out what you should get next. Work that sucker as hard as you can. Figure out what its limits are. Figure out how far and hard you can push it. When taking pictures, stop and think about what made you want to take a picture at that place, then try to think of a way to maximize that in your image.

Good luck and have fun!

I agree. It’s well exposed, which is part of the challenge for a lot of folks right off the bat.

If you don't have the money for expensive glass...you could easily go for a superzoom camera such as the Nikon P900 or something similar. The zoom is insane but has some drawbacks.
