Secure your camera with the strap !
2

DSLRs have a strap to hang it around your neck which can be very useful in astrophotography as well.

Last week I did astrophotography using my Canon R6 with a 70mm APO (EF 100-400 F4.5-5.6L zoomed in) on a Star Adventurer. I put the strap around the mount head and after polar alignment and centering the object, I bumped it inadvertently and it toppled causing it to fall off the sturdy table $#%%$%@$# But thanks to the strap, the camera + lens (which slided off the quick mount in the SA) dangled on the strap and did not hit the bricks of the floor, so no damage at all occurred. What a luck !
So this is an advice to always secure the camera (unfortunately astro cams like ZWO don't have a strap) or other delicate stuff !
