Where to get the users instruction manual for Gossen Lunasix? I have a Lunasix light meter but have no instruction manual. Can anybody tell me where to get the manual for Lunasix?
Thanks David Kuo. Try Bogen, they're very good about supplying older manuals. Keep this site quiet, please folks, because many of these useful web resources get taken down by spiteful companies that can't be bothered to put their old manuals online themselves, but will move heaven and earth to stop other people providing that service for free. HI, Art I am using 2 pcs. SR44 batteries. It might be the reason why I got the much higher light value. But there is another big problem that I can not fix it that is the needle can never be tested to the zero position.
I follow the manual of Lunasix 3 to test zero position of the indicator needle. I took out the battery, press the range selector forward or backward, then I turn the zero adjustment screw on the backside of Lunasix while holding down the range selector.
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. When I kept turning the zero screw clockwise, the needle swinged to the left, then it swing back to the right.
It never reached to the check line zero line. Even I turned the zero screw counter-clockwise, it happened the same way, the needle just swing back and forth, but never reached to the zero line, it reached to 4 of the low light scale, and 13 of the high light scale. That is the maximum the needle can reach to the left. I wondered what wrong with my Lunasix.
Is it because the batteries or the needle not properly set to zero position? And I supposed it came from not properly set to zero. David Kuo. Hi, Pete Many thanks for your advice and help. I get this web site to download the manual for Lunasix. Can you give me an advice why my meter can not be positioned zero properly? Could be the meter is simply broken.

Lunasix 3 manual
Sold for many years the Lunasix was famed for its low light sensitivity, still impressive by today's standards. It was the company's first light meter not based on a selenium light receptor. The styling, layout, and distinctive "computer" dial set the standard for successive Gossen meters until the advent of electronic displays. A later revision changed from the original mercury batteries, these models being distinguished by a black case. Finally, the computer dial was replaced by the Lunasix F dial which incorporated exposure compensation, this version called Lunasix 3s. The Lunasix 3 introduced the standard incident light dome and meter front end aperture for clip on accessories that featured on every Gossen professional meter until the completely restyled Variosix F of The Lunasix was Gossen's flagship meter until the Profisix and remained available for some years afterwards.
The Gossen Profisix in US Luna-Pro sbc is a professional "system" exposure meter that can be fitted with a range of electrically connected accessories offering additional measurement facilities, including flash, enlarger metering, and colour temperature. The "Profi-System" line continued and ended with the Mastersix. In spite of its name, it is not related to the Lunasix at all, but does share the same range of clip on accessories. Flash metering was incorporated, however sensitivity was reduced compared to the Profisix as was the range of accessories Profisix accessories will not fit the Lunasix F. The Lunasix F was Gossen's last professional meter with a mechanical moving needle display and the last without a microprocessor. It has further reduced sensitivity and does not provide flash metering. In spite of mechanical display and "computer" dial, these meters are electronic as circuitry to store the light reading is necessary for flash measurement.
