    The most comfortable way of using binoculars is to mount them on a mirror mount and use them sitting down at a table. This way you can very comfortably view near the zenith - something that you can not easily do with a tripod. The only slight down side is that the image is reversed and it does initially take a little time to get used to it, but once you do the comfort and rock steady images can not be beaten. Don't know if you can get THIS in the States but it is very good - try googling "binocular skywindow" for something similar.
