Eyepieces MeoStar B1 and B1.1 8x32 (1 Viewer)

Hello, I have a question concerning the eyepieces of the newer MeoStar B1.1 8x32. Maybe someone out there can help me.
Several years ago I used and liked the old one quite a lot. Unfortunately, the eyepieces had a way to small diameter to fit to my face. About 32-33mm , If I remember correctly.
So I didnt keep it. Now with the new B1.1 I looks as if meopta has them beefed up.
So, maybe one of you has both and could post a picture of them side by side?
Due to Corona all shops are closed over here and I dont want to order one just to have a look it.
Thank you!

Hi Oetzi. Appears to be about the same on my 10x32’s.
Hey , regarding your 10x32’s ... on paper their specs have their eye relief a hair longer than the 8x32. Is this a mistake ? or would the 10x32 actually be easier to use with my glasses due to their longer eye relief.

Hi Gwen. I’ve only used them briefly so far as they are a Birthday present. I tend to use my binoculars without wearing my glasses. I did try them with glasses at one point and with my frames , they were fine.

Interesting you’ve found them different I emailed Meopta to se if the Plus had bigger eyecups because the previous versions were too small for me. The following is the response I received.


Paul,

The eyecups on the B1 Plus 8x32 are the same as on the previous B1 and B1.1 versions. We did not make any changes to them on the Plus variant.
