MeoStar® B1 50mm Series 12x50 HD
Extend your observation to the edges of the day.
Built for the birder or nature enthusiast who wants to squeeze every last bit of performance out of a binocular, yet still be manageable enough to carry on extended outings. A 50mm objective lens system combined with a larger exit pupil delivers a relaxed view and extracts extra detail in low light and shadowed areas. MB5501TM ion assisted lens multi-coatings deliver maximum brightness while MeoShield TM coatings protects exposed lens surfaces from abrasion. Surprisingly compact for a 50mm binocular its size and weight compares directly to competing 42mm binoculars yet its large objective lens size ensures maximum resolution and low light ability at maximum distances. If you observe birds and wildlife on the edges of the day and desire the highest resolution images a MeoStar® B1 50mm binocular is the perfect choice.
12x50 – Highest magnification for observing the greatest detail at maximum distances. Excellent choice for hawk watching, shore birding and on wide open terrain where greater observation range is desired.
