MeoPro Optika LR 10×42 HD Range Finding Binos: The Perfect Spotter for Range or Hunting
The MeoPro Optika LR high-performance binoculars have HD fluoride glass and the premium European optics that has made Meopta famous for 80 years. They also have a new trick, a laser range that can quickly measure distance out to over 2500 yards.
I have used the Optika LR on the range and in the field. The optics are incredible, especially at low light levels. When you are gathering data, the LR lets you record accurate range data and see your groups.
The single most important factor in accurate long range shooting is establishing range and angle to the target. Precise range and incline data are projected right on to your image. At the end of the ballistic curve, bullets are coming down on the target at pretty extreme angles. This means that a small error in range can result in a complete miss.
With an accurate range and angle data, your ballistic calculator can produce a precise aiming solution. Meopta gives you all that and the ability to identify your target and what is beyond.
The Optika LR is waterproof and filled with inert Nitrogen gas to prevent internal fogging. MeoDrop hydrophobic coating ensures a clear view, even in the most extreme weather conditions.
The LR runs on a single CR2 3V battery. The LR 10×42 HD will range up to 2,600 yards and LR 8×50 HD (coming out in April 2021) will range to 2,950 yards. After a measurement is done, the display shows values that stay there until automatic shut-off (about 10 seconds) or until the next measurement. The display’s brightness can be adjusted in the menu.
In hunting, scouting and stalking are as important as shooting. The LR lets you see what is out there and get an exact range so you know your limits for an ethical shot. You can pick out range markers for your position for range awareness.
The integrated laser rangefinder features three modes to adapt to shooting in varied terrain:
Auto – Provides continuous ranging of moving targets.
Near Ranging – Provides ranges the closest object in the aiming circle.
Far Ranging – Provides ranges the farthest object in the aiming circle to ensure an accurate reading in situations where there may be objects in the foreground, such as tree limbs or tall grass.
The Optika LR also features twist-up eyecups, dual diopter adjustments, and a low battery indicator. The illuminated organic LED display can be set to yards or meters and features four levels of brightness control. Display readings automatically shut off after 10 seconds to extend battery life.
The organic light-emitting diode (OLED) is a new type of light-emitting diode which uses a film of organic compound that emits light in response to an electric current. An OLED display works without a backlight because it emits visible light. It can be thinner and lighter than a liquid crystal display (LCD). In low ambient light conditions (such as a dark room), an OLED screen can achieve a higher contrast ratio than an LCD and display deep black levels.
The magnesium alloy body and rubber armoring make the Optika LR rugged enough for use in the most brutal terrain. It is fully waterproof, shockproof, and its optical and mechanical performance is backed by Meopta’s Lifetime Transferrable Warranty.
