(just found this forum, looks like a lot of great info)
I received these binoculars as a surprise gift, I would like recommendations on a good tripod setup. I see some parallelogram mounts (Orion?), that seem to be the most versatile for different viewing positions (seated/reclined/standing). These binoculars are 9 lbs, I am 6'2", it seems like I'll want something sturdy, yet tall.
I am 6'2", would mainly be using them on my deck or back yard, in the light-drenched Chicago suburbs. I'd like to get something before the Saturn/Jupiter conjunction on the 21st, but I am not optimistic about shipping times this season. Thanks.
