MeoStar® B1 42mm HD Series

Fluoride lens elements deliver incredible images.

Winner of OutdoorLife magazines “Editors Choice Award”  for 2012, the MeoStar® 42mm HD binocular is ranked as being one of the finest HD binoculars in the world. The addition of extra-low dispersion, fluoride objective lens elements eliminate chromatic aberration (CA) or color fringing in challenging lighting conditions and deliver pin point resolution, increased contrast and vivid color fidelity. Class-leading wide FOV and extremely flat field lets you take in more image and makes for effortless, distortion-free panning. MB5501 TM ion assisted lens multi-coatings deliver maximum brightness in all conditions with pin point resolution and crystal clear edge-to-edge performance. An ergonomically shaped armor design with sculpted thumb pockets encourages a balanced, secure hold for extra comfort during extended glassing sessions.

10x42 HD – Higher magnification for observing the greatest detail at extended distances. Excellent choice for nature watching or observation on wide open terrain where greater range is desired.

I love these binos. They are just as bright and clear as those other higher priced European brands..They might be a tad heavier than some of theres but I promise you won\'t mind with the amount of money you are saving. These are TOP-NOTCH , and I highly recommend these.

As the owner of a Skoda bicycle many years ago, I am well aware of the robustness and dependability of Czech products. Adding the newest technology, it was simple for me to have bought a pair of Meopta binoculars. They have proven to be of the highest quality and are very sturdy and comfortable to use. The image quality is very high and justify this brand\'s ranking among premium European binocular makers.

My name is Steve Collara and I am a Meopta dealer.

I am not a hunter but I do like fine optics and I personally own a pair or Meo Star 10x42HD binoculars.

I know fact certain that Meopta's optics and second to none. I use my binoculars for football games and whenever I go on vacation I take them with me. I guess you could say "I never leave home withoth them."

At sporting events, such as the New Orleans Saints Football, whenever I can scrounge a ticket for a home game, it is usually not great seats, so I like the 10x to get me closer to the action. The problem is getting them away from my fourteen year old son. I've tried 8x30's which give you a wider field of view but the 10x for poor seating works the best.

I fish a lot, and use the 10x42 HD's to see what bait the other boaters are using and what they are catching.

Being a retail sporting goods owner, I get to examine and evaluate all of the other brands, and for my money, the Meopta 10x42 HD's are the clearest glasses out there. As for hunting scopes, the Meopta Meo Star 3-12x56 is the best value for the money. This product is my best seller and when I sell a Meopta product I do it with complete confidence my customer will be happy

I purchased the Meostar HD 10x42 binoculars a couple years ago after wanting to invest in a good set of optics for hunting and wildlife viewing. After doing lots of research, reading reviews, talking to owners of different models, and looking through several different pairs myself that I was considering, I decided to go with the Meostar HD 10x42s and I am so happy I did. They are the perfect balance for me between cost and clear HD optics.

I recently had the chance to compare side by side with a set of vortex razor 10x42 HDs while looking at mule deer on the winter range. While looking over the snow-covered slopes and trying to pick out animals with my friends set of razors while he was using my meostars, I noticed that the razors seemed much bluer to my eyes, and also the edge sharpness was not the same as with my meostars. Also I really prefer how the meostars fit in my hand over how the razors do.

Overall I am very happy with my purchase and would not hesitate to buy again if I were in the market for binos.

I am an obsessed whitetail hunter who takes vacation time off work fro Halloween until the first week in December, my 40+ days of madness hunting in the Upper Midwest. I also shoot alot of 3D archery tourney's year round as well as regular trips to the gun range so good optics are a big part being successful doing any of the above.
I can honestly say these Meopta MeoPro's are the real deal an dIMO they will hang with anything in the <$1,000 category, alot of times beating them. I have owned the Vortex Razor HD's as well as the Vortex Viper HD's and the MeoPro HD's are better than the Viper's in every possible category. Between the MeoPro HD's and Razor HD's I feel the Meopta's have a slightly sharper image while costing 1/2 of what the Razor's cost... plus Meopta has the best customer service I've ever experienced. Another plus is that the MeoPro's are made in the USA at their New York facility with everything designed and manufactured in house at their European facility.

I have used these binoculars for a couple of years now and have been blown away by their performance. The resolution and low light performance are exceptional. Additionally, these binos are built like a tank. I have owned other European brands of scopes and binoculars but none offer the performance for the money that Meopta does.
