I bought a Meopta Meostar 8x42. I want to try one again. If Lee likes them they must be good! I will comment on them here.
No problem. They are B1.1 Meostars 8x42. What is the difference? A newer model?
Thanks, Lee. Nice improvement. The diopter looks much improved. No optics or other changes? By the way what exactly does this mean? "You are never alone, with a sheep."The difference is in the dioptre adjuster which is now a pull-up wheel with a window in it (pic on the right) as opposed to the tapered wheel sitting on top of the focus as seen on the B1 on the left.
As big a jump as... from 10 to 12x. I really liked the 12x50 I tried once, which happened to be the EL. If 15x hadn't worked out for me I'd definitely have wanted a 12. It's a nice format....There is a BIG jump in magnification from 15x to 18x and how much detail you can see. Roger Vine called the UHD a small apochromatic scope...
MeoStar 56mm binos use AK prisms.
Really good one.For Pete's sake Bill! Are you trying to start a discussion about quantum mechanics?
According to the Meopta website they use SP prisms, FWIW.
