No REAL surprises for ME in there !
It would have been even more interesting if some Image Stabilised binoculars could have been included in the experiments !
Thanks again for a very valuable contribution .

For anyone interested in further discussion about this article and not yet not acquainted with the binocular forum, I would ask that you please visit this lengthy thread on the article which took off over there rather than here. You will find a number of things explained.

I gather the tests were done with the binoculars held horizontally?

Other aids: Lean on a pole or the corner of a building with one hand in contact with it to help steady your hold. I see so much more amd better with my 15x70. It is very rare to use my 7x50. With these steadying holds it is better than with a too-light tripod. I have not yet submitted an article on these techniques because I need someone to take the photos of the holds.
It is amazing how many features on the Moon I can now see and identify with the 15x70.
