I have been using my Lunt 45 degree 100mm APO ED binoculars on a v1+.FTX with Avalon T-Pod 130 tripod. It got a lot of use over 4 nights at the Golden State star party. I was also using a TEC 140 and Webster D14. When I wasn't directly using the Lunts at higher powers I would put in a pair of Panoptic 24mm with Lumicon UHC filters. It never failed to impress anyone walking by and panning up the Milky Way and seeing all the bright nebulosity.
