Meopta USA announced its MeoStar 3-12×56 riflescope series will see the introduction of a new, patent-pending dichroic reticle technology.

The DichroTech coating allows reticles to sport multiple color configurations bringing the ability to automatically adjust color tone and intensity in various light conditions — all without the need for a battery.

The 4D DichroTech reticle offers a 4 MOA red dot with dot and crosshairs activated via ambient light. The light-sensitive coating turns bright red in daylight, slipping into a light green color in lower light for better contrast, according to Meopta.

“We are excited to bring this exceptional reticle technology to the hunting and shooting communities,” Randy Garrison, Director of Meopta USA Sport Optics, said in a news release. “Meopta DichroTech reticles feature a leading-edge coating that enhances contrast and improves aiming ability in varying light conditions. This reticle technology offers hunters and shooters a convenient alternative to battery-powered illuminated riflescopes.”

The DichroTech design also brings a colored reticle to shooters, which is more transparent and delivers a more “complete field of view.”

Meopta says the DichroTech 4D reticle will be initially available on the 30mm MeoStar R1 3-12×56 with a first focal plane reticle and MeoStar R1r 3-12×56 with a second focal plane reticle. The DichroTech will eventually make its way onto more Meopta scopes in the future.

The DichroTech 4D reticle equipped scopes start at $999, topping out at $1,199.
