You've mentioned what you intend to use the new camera for.
What is your budget?

With a budget of $1000 USD you will not get results that are a cosmic leap forward over your current camera body.
I recommend investing in a $250 semi-pro tripod, which is something you would need with an upgraded camera, anyway. Most of the best moon photos you see were captured using a qualaity tripod.

As cool as it would be to take cosmic pics I would be ok with just a camera with a better zoom I'm just ready for the next step up I just not sure what that would be
