[Geysers] Image-stabilized binoculars

See my note above about the "Little Crack" features, and all I was using 
was the little Bushnells you can get in the lower store (light, but more 
powerful than my 210mm camera lens). Also great for Oblong curls, bird 
watching, etc. The image stabilization would be a nice feature, but you 
can work around it using both hands and a prop for your elbows. 
Definitely a must if you really want to see what's going on in Kaleidoscope.

I've tried them out in the store, and they really do seem to work, but if anyone has experience on the ground, I'd love to hear about it.
