Pictured in his backyard in Georgia, Carlos Flores uses a range of equipment to observe the sky.  In addition to observing, he enjoys astrophotography.  He uses a Canon EOS 400D digital camera in conjunction with a variety of lenses and telescopes to take images.  Immediately to Carlos's right are the Televus 4" Telescopt on an EQ-6 mount, which was used in photographing the Lunar Eclipse.  Also shown is a Pro Optics 500 mm lens on an EQ-3 mount.
