I realise this channel has been mentioned a few times on IIS in older posts, but they have mostly been ignored and long forgotten. For beginners especially, it's well worth investing the time to watch Tanaka's astrophotography videos.

His main focus is deep sky though, so if you're interested in planetary photography you will need to also look elsewhere.
These definitely helped me when I was starting! These are my go to videos to send to new starters, really handy resources
