    After much thinking on the subject over the last week, I think it may be
    more advantageous for me to get a massive pair of binoculars and put them
    on a mount.  I think a mount would be great, even now with my 7x35's.  I
    can see so few stars on anything but the best nights.  So, I like
    satellites that culminate at near zenith.  Why?  Zenith is easy to find,
    and you don't need any guide stars for that.  And a mount is good for
    that, too.
    I looked at my latest Orion catalog (I haven't bought anything from there
    in years, but I hope they keep the catalogs coming....), and saw a
    good-looking mount for $75 USD (I don't want a flimsy mount).  Does
    anyone have any recommendations for a binocular mount?  Or perhaps even
    try to make one myself?
