I agree, it's just a small common spot by now, barely intetesting, except for visibility tests. Binoculars have that stability problem. I use 12×30 (handy and small, I carry them with me, especially when I'm travelling, good for fast observations - but you'll be surprised, I can even see the horse head nebula with those, saturn's ring(s), double stars etc.). With 7×50 that kind of spots don't look interesting at all, neither (almost) with the 12×30. Telescopes, even small ones, are better and much more stable of course.
