Yes, and the singular form should have precedence, compare with other popular tags such as "star" or "black-hole"

the-sun and the-moon are now the official tags. lunar is now a synonym of the-moon. moons is now a synonym of natural-satellite. Only developers can blacklist tags, but I don't think we need to blacklist moon. I made it a synonym of the-moon. Even though moon is ambiguous, in most cases people will be looking for the-moon. When they are not, they will see ...

It's been done, thanks! https://astronomy.stackexchange.com/tags/csst/info Questions regarding the CSST, aka the Chinese Space Station Telescope or Xuntian.

All of them have a substantial number of questions, but you are right that spectrum should be consolidated under spectra. Otherwise, I think we should probably leave them be, but spectrometry needs a tag excerpt.

I don't think we need both tags. I suggest merging the chemistry questions into astrochemistry, as we have astrobiology but no biology tag. I don't think we should create a synonym between chemistry and astrochemistry though. chemistry only has four uses this year, so I don't think it will be a big deal to retag manually in the future. That said, we should ...

The tag foundamental-astronomy has been marked as a synonym of fundamental-astronomy. Users can't actually use "foundamental astronomy" - everything automatically routes, corrects, and or renames to fundamental-astronomy.

These seem to be the questions tagged measurement that are about some kind of measuring. I think that for all except "measure the age of the universe" the observational-astronomy tag would be fine. I've no objection to the proposed synonymization. How do we measure the age of the universe? How do we measure the brightness of the stars? What ...

I agree that tidal-forces concept is the driving force (literally) for ocean tides. Bodies have solid-tides as well, so we should either have three tags or one. I kind-of like the idea of having all three tags, but then what should we call the tides that the moons of gas giant planets induce in the gas? Or the tides produced in a star by a large companion (a ...

Hmm, planetary-science covers a topic space that is not applicable to all planet questions, so I don't think a synonym is appropriate. planetary-science was originally conceived to capture questions about atmospheric or geological properties of planets, rather than purely astronomical observations. I see that the term "planetary science" may have ...

I'll merge them. As for your last question, we could make a sagittarius-a-asterisk tag, but since Sagittarius A* is a component of Sagittarius A, I don't see the need for a separate tag.
