Star photography tutoring

I would like to be better at star photography (astrophotography) by getting some tutoring from someone who has been doing this for a while. While I'm fairly proficient in normal photography, star photography is a different beast, requiring more tinkering with manual focus (or finding focus points in the dark), getting the right shutter speed / aperture / ISO ratio, and more. I have a high end "compact" Fujifilm XS-1 and an Olympus E-510 SLR (help with lens choice for astrophotography would also be appreciated)

Music lessons - Plucking the Upright Double Bass

That's right - it's on my bucket list - I've always wanted to play the upright double bass - and not with a bow. I love music but never played an instrument apart from the recorder aged 7 … hmm nope that doesn't count does it?! I'm hoping it's not a long shot and that we have an MC TimeBanker with a passion for slappin' the upright double bass. Maybe we could start up a Mid Canterbury TimeBank band... watch this space! :)

Hāwera: Crochet instruction

I can crochet but not start very well. I'd like a few in-person sessions so I can start new projects with ease. I'd prefer to work with someone in person as you will be able to see what I am doing and guide me. We can have a cuppa in the process. Happy to come to you or you to me. I am on Milmoe St.   Thanks,    Patina
