I've snapped the Moon and a few other things using tripod-mounted bins while travelling.

HI Philip,
Ive taken a couple of images using my 4mp compact,digiscope adapter and 10X50 binoculars.That was before I got my DSLR and telephoto lens.Its a bit challenging but I may have a few more goes now we've got a binocular section.[:)]
The first image was of the Moon and Saturn on 19th September 2006.

Not tried pics through bins yet but have used them to get the sun focussed on to a paper and managed to see some sunspots.
Took a bit of fiddling about to get the alignment right.

Has anyone ever taken a photo of the ISS through Binoculars?

I snapped the Pleaides (M45) through my bins last night but haven't processed the pics yet.

To be honest, it was a bit of a disappointment. My shots through my Stratravel 80 are more convincing.

At least it is recognisable Phillip so full marks for effort.
