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 8x56 Meostar B1 is part of the Meopta flagship, the Meostar series.  It is an enormous, and enormously bright, binocular-well suited to use at dusk and even into starlight for the dedicated hunter.  It has an exit pupil of 7.0mm, which is wider than almost any person's own pupil ever becomes of its own accord.  This makes it quite simple to keep the image exiting the binocular directly over your own pupil.  With this kind of weight, the addition of a monopod while in the field will greatly increase your all-day stamina on a hike.

Enormous half-pentagonal & Schmidt design roof prisms yield supreme brightness

      Comments about Meopta 8x56 Meostar B1 Binocular:

      These binoculars are amazing. There isn't a better buy out there. I've taken them out in the field to compare with other top end European Optics (ie Zeiss, Swarovski, Kahles, etc.) both in daylight and night time conditions. The clarity of the Meopta is at least as good as the others and the light gathering is incredible. The only other optics I've seen that have comparable light gathering capabilities are the European Zeiss. At less than 1/2 the price of these other brands and with quality & functionality as good or better, why would you buy anything other than Meopta???
