Mentor? Melbourne SE Suburbs

Hi everyone,

Not sure if one can ask this here - so feel free to correct me if I'm doing anything wrong : )

I've come to the realization that I need a mentor to take my astrophotography to the next level. I've been at it now for six months, and I understand that the learning curve on Astrophotography is slow and steep, even though I'm an experienced professional photographer.

I've read up heaps but I'm basically self taught. Just sorting out good ways to fine tune basics like drift alignment and guiding would be a start.

If there was an experienced hand out there who was willing and bribable to help, I would be most grateful! I live in Glen iris, Melbourne.

Cheers

Andy

Have you thought about joining the Astronomical Society of Victoria and hooking up with people in their Astrophotography section?

Lots of people head out to the Leon Mow Dark Sky site on new moon who can offer plenty of advice to you.

Hi John,

I've been to a couple of ASV star parties at the LMDSS as a guest of a buddy who lives at Kilmore, but was hoping for something local while I'm still on my L plates.

Thanks for your suggestions.

Cheers

Andy
