On the market since 2015, the largest MeoStar model gained a reputation as a serious challenger to the leading glasses of this class, such as the Swarovski SLC 15×56 (see https://binocular.ch/swarovski-slc-15×56-w-b/) or the Zeiss Conquest HD 15×56 (see https://binocular.ch/zeiss-conquest-hd-15×56/). Overall very good optical and mechanical performance at a price well below that of the German and Austrian competitors. See link below (under “Review”) for more information.
