In the past I hardly ever visited the website of Sky and Telescope. But with the newsfeed of the most interesting articles on this website I more often click on a link. And, when at the website of S&T, the attention is drawn to other articles. In this way I came accross the article to stabilize your binoculars without investing in an expensive Image Stabilized version.
Read the whole article: Image Stabilize your binoculars.

It sounds interesting enough to try it out. There is not much wood needed and the time is no problem. Also the comments below the article are promising. I am curious how much time it takes before we see one at one of the public star parties. But you need to be careful when avoid running into a telecope or person.
