Well, maybe not the chair, exactly – its just one of those “zero-g” chairs I got on sale.
Its the binoculars I wanted to use – they are very large and too heavy to hold for more than a few minutes, and are so powerful that any shaking (even your heartbeat) makes them useless. So, I built a parallelogram stand for them that stays right in front of my eyes where I put them. You can do some amazing stargazing with them, and the stereo view is wonderful.
Along with a blanket and a hot adult beverage, this makes astronomy a very comfortable experience!
Probably more than you want to know about it at www.liming.org/bino if you are curious.
