Greetings all
Reading through the 1999 edition of exploring the night sky with binoculars it contains a picture of Patrick Moore using a chest harness to support a pair of big binoculars ,wonder if anyone out there familiar with or used similiar :?: cant say i can recall coming across any adverts in the printed media or on the net for this type of gear

Hi,
Have a look at this post (half way down), it takes about an observing chair made from cheapo ABS piping, its not quiet what you're asking for, nut its cheap and easy to make.

Thanks Dave very interesting and cool chair one to file away for the future ,i am presently using a wooden type of frame which i came across in an old sky and telescope article titled (image stabilise your binoculars) by Gary Seronik. It works on a counter balance principle and it works very well with light binoculars (10*50) its not so good with my 20*80's it becomes a little un-wieldy, but i am still experimenting with it great beleiver in the KISS principle (keep it simple Stanley)
