  • Conclusion: The Meopta Meostar is undoubtedly a good, solid set of binoculars. If it has several vices, they are partially connected with the past of the factory where it was made. We mean here lousy whiteness rendition. Binoculars produced in the Eastern Bloc countries have always shown a yellow image, the most probably because of antireflection coatings which transmission was the highest in the yellow part of the spectrum.
  • Pros: very solid housing,, slight astigmatism,, quite low coma,, chromatic aberration well corrected,, relatively sharp image in the whole field of view,, low light fall-off at the edge of the field,, low flares,, perfectly circular exit pupils,, good blackening inside the binoculars,, good quality of coatings and prisms.
  • Cons: distinctly yellow image,, too high distortion,, big difference in transmission between the right and the left inner tube,, short warranty period for this price segment.
