Multiply any focal length by 1.5, there's your full-frame equivalent. What's good, of course, depends upon the subject and your desired field of view. For your D500, wide angle starts at about 24mm actual focal length.

You're more likely to experience vignetting (darkness around edges of pictures) with lower cost wide-angle zoom lenses. Fast prime (single focal length) lenses produce the best image quality, but even second-hand can be expensive. You are the final judge - try the wide angle settings (17mm-24mm) on your lens and see for yourself if the quality is good enough for your purpose.

If you want to take a look at some awesome astrophotography and ask questions, @crimbfighter has a lot of wonderful astro shots, and very knowledgeable on the subject, including the best lenses for what you want.
 
I have a Sigma 10-20mm f/3.5 that I use on both my D500 and D7200. It has performed very well for me over the years. I will be taking it with me to Alaska next month.

Tamron makes good wide angle lenses to.
 
Been pleased with my 10-24 Nikkor. Theres also a much cheaper (less than half the $$) version from Nikon, 10-20 zoom range and a bit slower apertures.
