Largest bins you can hand hold

I'm a BIG STRONG guy (freakishly strong upper body strength according to medical experts) but even i can not hold my 20X90 bins handheld for more then 10-15 second until shaking comes into play. That is why i ALWAYS observe with them mounted on a tripod.

10X50 handheld for MOST people should be a walk in the park.

Anything over that i suggest a tripod.

My 15x70s are mounted on tripod but quite often I hold the closed up tripod and rest the eyepiece over my eyes. seems to work for me. dont get the shakes that way. I only do this for scanning around the sky and stand the tripod on the ground for more prolonged obs.
