There are two answers to this question: Mallory PX 13 mercury batteries are available gosen most camera shops. The Personal Touch Do you really have to expose very critically every time? The indicator needle should now rest on the check line to the left of the scale divisions It cannot think for you!


Null pointer ambient and flash meter Display: Use a reversal colour film; select several “normal” scenes; take careful reflected and incident light measurements and shoot! The Lunasix and Luna-pro meters are designed to use a pair of mercury cells. Fits the ocular tube of all microscopes for exact exposure determination. The green and red ring indexes apply only for measurements with the Variable Angle “spot meter” attachment.

Reflected light field luminance in footlamberts. Profisix, Lunasix F, Lunalite Type: Personal tools Log in. Pointer needle with mechanical computer Sensor: Is it because the batteries or the needle not properly set to zero position? The brightest portions of a colour transparency, the darkest portions of a black-and-white print, should still show some detail!


It deserves your good care! The Lunasix F was positioned alongside the Lunasix and in turn was replaced by the Multisix.

However, photography under poor light conditions may call for “abnormally” long exposure times. SBC silicon blue diode Measurement angle: Lunasix 3 manual Here are all the pages of the operating manual for the Gossen Lunasix 3 photographic light meter.

You can read the pages one by one from the links below, or get the whole manual in pdf format you will need Acrobat Reader. Otherwise, determine by how much you need to increase or decrease future exposure readings to get the best results. But soon the demands become more stringent, especially goszen results are com pared. It is advisable to check the condition of the batteries from time to time, as follows: This involves opening the meter case and adjusting several variable resistors inside.

Now, you must remember that the accurate exposure information which your LUNASIX 3 gives you may not even be fully utilized because all sorts of “tolerances” must be reckoned with: The needle did swing to the left of the scale, but it never can reach to the check line zero line – the very left end line on the scale. It enables you, by means of instant-lock-on attachments, to refine your measuring tech niques not only in your camera work on location and in the studio, but in enlarging or in photomicrography and photography through terrestrial telescopes.


The LUNASIX 3 should not be considered a full-fledged footcandle meter because, strictly speaking, footcandles of illumination can be measured only be means of a flat interception screen. Thus, under identical illumination, the indicator needle will be deflected less by dark objects than by bright ones.

For reflected light measurement, footcandle values cannot be given at all, since this method measures not the illumination but the brightness of the surface field luminance which can be expressed in footlamberts.

Like the highly sensitive nerves of your own eyes, the photo resistor should not be exposed unnecessarily to bright light for extended periods.
