    Very light* setup (binoculars + scope)

    @Dr. K That's a very clear explanation, I haven't seen a tripod that doubled as a "shoulder grip". Very interesting. Thanks!

    Very light* setup (binoculars + scope)

    @Dr. K This sounds interesting. Do you by any chance remember the brand/model of that tripod? @mwhogue I think I recognise that Minox case from an 8x25 I had quite a while ago (I think it was my first ever pair, I probably have the case lying around, but the binoculars took a shock and not only...

After using 8x for several years, I felt I wanted more power, but whatever 10x I tried left me wanting for more; I saw little difference compared to 8x to justify the change. It was only when I tried 12x that I discovered something similar to...

    Very light* setup (binoculars + scope)

    Maybe it’s because we now have two kids, maybe it’s because we’re busier, who knows, but sometimes I find myself in “different” birdwatching scenarios, compared to, say, a couple of years ago. Very often there is less time available, and often the opportunity demands a lighter/smaller set of...
