  1. There is a adapter thread and I have a Manfretto tripod and trigger ball head
  2. I did see good reviews for the EDs, but cannot find anything on the Blackwatch, presumably because they are an older model. The price is good, so I am thinking of taking a punt given the Hawke name.
  3. Does anyone know anything about this make please? I have been offered a pair of Hawke Blackwatch 20x60 binos, but cannot find anything on Google so I have no idea if they are any good.
  4. A monopod and Bino Mount will make everything so much more stable and wobble-free, and really improve the viewing experience
  5. Welcome to the forum
  6. I was wondering the same thing, and the answers here have given me food for thought.
  7. Got my first look at the Sky last night since the operation on my hand. Only 7 or 8 minutes when I noticed the cloud had broken a bit. Being a complete novice I didn’t try to identify anything, I just looked with my 10x50s mounted on the monopod with the Manfretto trigger head. Brilliant! Roll on clearer skies.
  8. I would avoid zoom binos like the plague. Stick with 7x50s or 10x50s. I have 3 pairs of binos, Nikon 7x50s, Bresser 10x50s and Celestron 15x70s.
  9. Been on the forum for a couple of weeks or so now, but only just read this thread. It is brilliant and very informative, thank you.
