i didn’t see a screw in stud on my els. What am I missing?
I assume you are talking about the Leica bino range finder? Yes the bino does not have a stud hole, you have to use the Leica Stabilite Tripod Adapter, it's a craddle which has a stud hole. I have one and works great and you can use it to hold your rifle, spotting scope, lunch, etc.

I have the 12x50 EL and went with the outdoorsman stud (really their entire system-head, tripod, plates, mounts, etc) and I’m very happy. It’s small enough and well made.

Thank you. I have some extra 1/8” Kydex I’ve used to mold cheek pieces. I will try and form a nice mount out of that for giggles.

Threw some Kydex in the oven last night and formed this on the els. I used some thin kydex since I couldn’t find my thicker stuff. Test run seems to work well, just need to mount the tripod quick plate. Next is to build one from thicker kydex, trim the sides and sand.

Looks good. Leica makes one just like that that I'm sure would work for your Swarovskis.

I have a hard time paying for things I can build. If it doesn’t pan out, I will look at the bogpod. Thx

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
