MeoStar® B1 42mm Series

The benchmark full sized binocular.

Long considered to be the best all-around format, the MeoStar® 42mm binocular series has developed the well-deserved reputation of being among the finest in the world.  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. If you’re looking for the finest, do-it-all binocular, your search is over.

7x42 - Extremely wide field of view of 411 ft. Lower magnification offers increased depth of field and increased stability. Excellent choice for birding, nature watching or hunting in dense forest terrain or nautical adventures where a stable view is desired. 

8x42 – Extremely wide field of view of 411 ft. Excellent choice for an all-around birding and nature watching binocular.

10x42 – Higher magnification for observing detail at extended distances. Excellent choice for hawk watching, shore birding and on wide open terrain where greater observation range is desired.

I bought these Binos in 2010 and have had them in my truck since the day I bought them. They get used almost daily as I drive done a lot of oil roads and am always glassing for different creatures along the way. They are great in low light conditions and offer a comfortable solution for long days behind them. Very rugged and was a very easy decision for the price.

I bought a pair of MeoStar 8x42's for birding and nature observation. I tested the MeoStar directly with the Swarovski SLC (previous version). I found no difference in image quality as the Meopta's were the equal of the Swarovski binoculars (yet much less expensive). The MeoStar's were better ergonomically and more comfortable to hold.
