Steady your binoculars

-

You will see more detail and depth if your binoculars are steady. The simplest way to hold small binoculars steadily is to hold them with your index and middle finger around the eyepieces, the other two fingers around the binoculars’ body, and rest the first knuckle of your thumb in the indentatio­ns on the outside of your eye sockets. Mounted binoculars are steadier, but tripod legs can get in the way. However, if you use a monopod, which doesn’t even need to be vertical to be enormously effective, you can make binoculars up to fairly big 20x80s much more stable.
