Moreover, the eye relief is of min. 15 mm, while the minimum observing distance is of around 3 meters.
As mentioned earlier, the Meopta B1 10x42 binoculars are impressively rugged and can work in pretty much any type of weather, as they feature tight moisture seals for waterproof performance and they've been nitrogen purged for fog proof performance. Moreover, the oversized center focus wheel with built-in adjustable diopter makes focusing easy and convenient.
The device also sports streamline ergonomics for easy handling in any weather, as well as a solid aluminum alloy body that will ensure an extremely long functioning life. Additionally, the binoculars have been equipped with a rugged rubber armor for improving the grip and protecting against impacts, as well as adjustable eyecups that twist in to accommodate eyeglass wearers.
The Meopta Meostar B1 10x42 binoculars sell for around 900 US dollars, which is indeed a pretty steep price point, but quite worth it, given the level of reliability and toughness these binoculars can provide.
