Product Highlights
  • Waterproof & Fogproof
  • Wide Angle
  • Roof Prism
  • 7.8° Angle of View
  • Made in Czech Republic

  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 8x42 Meostar B1 is part of the Meopta flagship, the Meostar series.  The 8x42 configuration is likely considered the best all-purpose birder's tool, and the Meostar is among the extremely short list of 8x42 units which have an apparent viewing angle(actual angle of view multiplied by magnification) of greater than 60°.  You will notice the difference between other 8x42 units that are not 'wide angle' binoculars immediately.

      Comments about Meopta 8x42 Meostar B1 Binocular:

      This is the best set of binoculars I have ever owned. Always wanted a good set, but just could not justify the price tag. I bought these and were amazed, they are extremely clear and bright. The magnification may be 8x but the quality glass and clarity make it seem much more. So far I have used them turkey hunting and plan on taking them to Africa later in the year. I don't think you could ask for a better quality pair.
