After purchasing my 15 X 70 Oberwerk binoculars is immediately became apparent I would need a good, heavy duty mount. This led to the Crutch Tripod and the P-Mount described here. The advantage to a P-Mount is that once an item is in the view of the binoculars you can move them up and down to accommodate people of different heights and the item can stay in the field of view. I can get an item in view and push the binos all the way down for my 4-year-old to see with no further adjustment needed.
