I'll again note that binoculars on a tripod can be hard on your neck if your looking at anything significantly above the horizon. Binos with 45-degree eyepieces, generally big and expensive, or some way to lie down, such as a lawn chair or the little inflatable boat I described above, enormously improve your comfort level when doing binocular astronomy (the vast majority of astronomical telescopes have the eyepiece at right angles to the sighting axis). Canon's stabilized binoculars are generally well regarded by bino-astronomy fans.
