If astronomy forums are of interest to you, here's a few:

Oort Cloud (formerly South Celestial Pole) is a growing Australian forum with some very good imagers.  All levels of astro-imaging & astronomy interest catered for.  A robust meeting place that combines some pretty serious astro with bursts of mayhem and the not-so-serious!

Webcam Moon Imagers is a relatively small Yahoo group for people interested in imaging the Moon with a webcam.  There is a monthly Imaging Challenge, where members have to shoot for a particular feature of the Moon!  The Challenge has two sections, to give opportunities for people with less advanced gear.

Amateur Astropics is a very small Yahoo group which would suit beginner astro-imagers, or more experienced people with limited equipment.  All astropics welcome, whatever level!  Create and share your own photo gallery; use the astronomical events calendar.

asv_astrophotography is a Yahoo group representing members of the Astronomical Society of Victoria who are interested in astrophography.
