Thanks. Short eye relief tends to be a problem for me on cool nights as the eye lenses generally fog up quickly. I attribute this to moisture from my eye. Hand holding the 20x60s would be my hope.
Anyway, I did say that I dislike being a party pooper and I think it's time to get back to Nate and his reasoned and enjoyable review/comparison. Realistically, I'm not investing in any IS binos, too much moolah, too much whizbang. The most sophisticated electronics I use on my scopes/binos is a Telrad.
If I want stable views without taking frequent breaks to give my arms a rest, I'll need to follow Nate examples.
Looking at Nate's photos, I think I could make my parallalogram mount work in its present modified form.
I should be out in the high desert on Monday for as week or two so I'll get a chance to give it a try and modify it if needed.
