An Optical Legend Creates a Legendary Spotting Scope, the Meopta Meostar S2

The well-known, century-old Eastern European optics giant Meopta has created a stir by making its best precision spotting scope, the Meostar S2, available at last on the American market.

A tale that began more than a century ago in Eastern Europe is telling its latest, very exciting chapter here in the United States. Perhaps you’ve heard the proverb, “things of quality have no fear of time.” That saying is certainly born out in the history of the Meopta company. Initially founded in 1907 in what was then Slovakia, the founders intended to make military optics. Fast forward 113 years and it’s as clear as an 82-millimeter hi-def lens that the original dream of the founders is still being fulfilled, along with many other grand accomplishments.

This article will review one particularly auspicious creation of the Meopta company, its state of the art spotting scope, the Meostar S2. While many in Europe, and some Americans who are birding hobbyists, are familiar with Meopta and its products, few in the United States—especially in the western part of the nation, where it would be incredibly useful—have heard of this top-flight device. It’s clear that, given just a little time for the word to spread, this scope will soon be recognized and revered.
