    Default My Introduction



    Myself Pinak... I am a medical practitioner in alternative medicine since 20 years, now living in Toronto Canada. Ever since I was 12, I am doing aeromodelling, building R/c airplanes, control line airplanes, and drones now. I am also interested in astronomical photography since long. I purchased my first 1000mm, 4" reflector telescope about 15 years ago, and ever since then I am using it (but casually until now). I have photographed some nice events like Venus transiting Sun, Solar eclipses, Sun spots, Moon craters, Jupiter with its moon, Saturn etc, but at beginner's level. Now I want to go in to long exposure photography using my Nikon DSLR with 55-300 lens for now. Later may use my old or may purchase a new telescope to do deep sky objects photography. I joined this forum to learn more from you guys. Thanks for warm welcome :-)

    Hello and welcome Pinak!
    There are several AF members in the Toronto area so you may be able to round up some company for observing sessions.

    Hi Pinak,
    Welcome to the forum. Great intro..

    I too flew R/C aircraft back in the late 70's & early 80's (showing my age.. ). Some of the best times in my younger life. What made it so great was the person that I built models and flew them with....... My father!!! My Dad was (and still is) my best friend!!!
