    Request advice re: Nikon Fieldscope ED50

    In view of my tall height I am now contemplating making my own cheap wooden monopod using a wooden pole, and trying that out. If it fails I have not lost much. Please may I seek advice in that regard as follows: I aim to fit a thread screw onto the top of the would-be wooden monopod. I...

    Request advice re: Nikon Fieldscope ED50

    Thank you. It is good to hear advice from someone with practical experience of the matter. As mentioned, I am loathe to fork out money for something then find it unsuitable, as that would be money wasted. I may now give further thought to a sturdy tripod instead. I am tall, as mentioned. I do...

    Request advice re: Nikon Fieldscope ED50

    Thank you for your helpful response. I will look into the Siriu p326. My scope has a 20-45 eyepiece and also a 30x eyepiece. In hindsight I wish I had got an angled scope now owing to my height. I have a foldable stool here I hadnt thought about using it for birding but that is certainly food...

    Well yes mine is straight. I guess that makes it harder to get a tall enough monopod

    Request advice re: Nikon Fieldscope ED50

    Hello. Please forgive my lack of knowledge of optics in birding. My telescope is an old Nikon ED50: I have a cheap tripod, but it is I think rather a flimsy plastic thing. I am six feet 3 inches tall. The cheap tripod has a centre bit that extends upwards with a handle to give more height. To...
