    on the website link you posted the cost of The Tandem is $263.50,
    and it does not exactly explain how the clinometer functions.  how
    do you use it?  could I strap it onto my binos and 'forget' about it
    and read it in the dark without needing a 3d or 4th hand as it mentions
    click of a button to switch between compass and clino, and for that
    price how accurate is it?  < 1deg, <0.5 deg.
