Most Raspberry Pi OS images are in this range, once installed you will also want to download the astrometry data, which is few more gigabytes in itself.

I'm glad I've got a large download package on my 4G mobile network!

as that's all that's available from the PI Hut, just now. 

That is what is in stock right now.

Would suggest that read their methods of requisitioning equipment, and get on their waiting list, buying out of stock Pi4 stuff is different from going to get eggs at the supermarket.

That's what I ordered the other day and arrived today, so that will have to suffice (for the moment).  I can always get a larger one later and use this one to learn on, or do other projects with it.

FYI I have Astroberry running on my RPi4 with 4GB RAM right now: Ekos and Kstars are loaded, PHD2 has just finished calibrating and the imaging is in progress. Memory usage comes in at ~900MB, so about 25% of my system.

So it seems to me that a 2GB RPi system should be fine, unless you do something I don’t with Astroberry
