Anyone, Do you find that, like me, steadying (like this or otherwise) makes a significant difference with 10x but not 8x?



Yes, it does mean that I place the binocular on the top of the stick, but I'm sure you recognize this as "poetic license."

Actually I use a Stoney Point, Polecat Monopod. It has a number of attachments, in particular a Binocular Rest attachment (#E-123) on which I rest the binocular along the bottom of it's center hinge. The Rest has a hinge on it that allows the binocular to be moved up and down while one hand is supporting the pole and tilting it as necessary.

I'm not sure if these are still being made.
