3–12x56 $1,200 Bat­tery-free il­lu­mi­nated plex In terms of op­tics and con­trols, there’s noth­ing es­pe­cially new here. This is a very good and bright 30mm hunting scope with a tra­di­tional Ger­man 4 ret­i­cle in the first plane. What new is ground­break­ing: an il­lu­mi­nated dot in the cen­ter of the ret­i­cle that re­quires no bat­ter­ies to ac­ti­vate. Meopta has de­vel­oped a light-sen­si­tive dichroic coat- ing that turns bright red in day­light con­di­tions but lime green in twi­light. The first-plane con­fig­u­ra­tion of our sam­ple is per­fect for run­ning game and su­per-fast tar­get ac­qui­si­tion in any light con­di­tions, but it’s not es­pe­cially use­ful for pre­ci­sion work.
