Meopta MeoStar B1 Plus 12×50

Looking for a legendary binocular with sharper images, greater optical performance, and ergonomic design, all at an affordable price?

Look no further, MeoStar B1 Plus Binocular represents the pinnacle of premium European optics from Meopta. Built on the legendary B1/B1.1 chassis with locking diopter, the B1 Plus features enhanced optical tolerances to provide ever-sharper images and greater optical performance. It’s redesigned exterior rubber armor gives the user a more solid grip, contoured to better fit in the hand for comfortable use in the field.

The Meostar B1 is Meopta’s premium range and they are entirely Czech made (including the glass). They provide a superior viewing experience by combining well-engineered optics and a wide field of view in a lightweight and durable housing. The body is manufactured from aluminum, not magnesium, but weighs just over a kilo.

Meopta intelligently designed the binoculars with ergonomics in mind to minimize user fatigue during long observations. Its large center focusing wheel is easy to use with either hand and a locking dioptric correction dial, located on the focusing knob, ensures precise focusing even if you normally wear corrective eyeglasses. The housing is made from a lightweight and durable aluminum alloy that is center-weighted by the prism design, so they sit comfortably in the hand. Protective rubber armor wraps the body and provides a slip-resistant grip, especially in cold and wet conditions. The housing is nitrogen-filled and sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging in extreme conditions.

The lenses on Meostar Binoculars are further treated with Meopta’s proprietary MeoShield and MeoDrop exterior coatings that protect the lens surfaces from scratches and makes cleaning oils and other contaminants easy without leaving residue. These coatings ensure the lenses stay free from imperfections that can interfere with your glassing experience and let you immerse yourself in the view.

The pairing of large 50mm objectives with the high 12x magnification produces the comfortable exit pupil and eye relief, ensuring you can see the whole landscape in front of you without eye strain if you spend long hours looking through them. Extra-low dispersion (ED) fluoride glass lenses, treated with proprietary MeoBright multi-coatings, and compact Schmidt-Pechan prisms deliver vivid true-color images that are bright and crisp across the entire field of view.
