Meopta makes only top notch optics, produced entirely in their Czech Republic facilities, with a focus upon brilliant color fidelity, performance & robust functionality in any conceivable condition with which a user would endeavor to observe. The company has been quietly designing supreme optics for a variety of industrial and consumer applications, so it only makes sense that they've finally entered the broad consumer market.
The 10x42 Meostar B1 is part of Meopta's flagship Meostar series. A 10x42 configuration offers markedly more pronounced magnification than an 8x42, great for scanning for smaller birds or when observing more distant animals such as at shore. Brightness, field of view and contrast are all simply amazing; an extremely robust powerhouse optic.
