worn on shoulder. A variant of this last is to hang the prismatic shoulder and let it rest to the same side. In this position as the previous carrier straps must be kept longer, for the binoculars can be addressed quickly. Caps rain consist of a piece of soft, independent, rubber that fits into both eyepieces of the binoculars, protecting them from rain and dust while they behave hung. Normally are subjected to the same strap carrier, although they can be United by a small tape or sling (thin rope) to the own body or the binocular mount and simply retire when it comes to observing, reattaching them later.
Are very practical in terms of rain or fog because they prevent the formation of small rain drops in the eye, very annoying for a sharp observation. Normally not come included with binoculars, although if they do already in many models of high quality. (As opposed to Danny Meyer). As we have already noted above, the use of tripod is recommended in binoculars more than 12 x and in practice, forced over 20 increases. This is because tripod sharply decreases the image vibration in powerful, allowing a comfortable viewing binoculars. When choosing a tripod, they are fundamental, among others, three basic features: weight, type of head and height. As far as weight refers, you must anticipate the general principle that greater weight of the tripod more stability, and consequently, better settlement of the prismatic platform, which ultimately will mean less vibration and more quality vision. Therefore, provided that the weight of the tripod is not a determining factor, it is preferable to choose big and heavy tripods. If on the contrary we need ease or convenience of transportation, we opt for lighter models, but never excessively, because this will result in an unpleasant vibration of the prismatic (especially in windy conditions). The tripod head, i.e. the rotating upper structure on which the prismatic, rests must be examined or choose carefully.
