My brother has 8x binoculars with a rubber sleeve for each eye that perfectly fits over the digicam lense housing. So while I had some fun putting the two together, holding them by hand wasn't stable enough and the photos were blurry. The answer was to modify my Dad's tripod to hold the binoculars in place but there was an added challenge. What I built couldn't interfere with his digicam. So I used cardboard and duct tape to hold the stakes, which I bent, in place. Then I taped the miscellaneous useless cards I and a friend had been carrying for ages, onto the base.
