    Thank you Lee, you are correct. I don't know how I missed the instruction manual you pointed out, looking to hard I guess. I have printed it off, and I will put it to good use, Thanks again

    I bought one of these on Ebay earlier this year, and just bought a "spot" (15 or 7.5 degree) attachment for it, as well as an enlarging attachment. I know they're old, but never thought of it as "collectable". I also have the manual for it which I will copy for you if you're not satisfied with the internet one. It's a flash meter as well, although I haven't tried to use this function.

    I did the same as jonnywalker did and bought the meter with case and bought the spot attachment soon after. I havn't checked the flash metering but it measures just about the same as my Zone IV modified Soligor meter. I wanted one for a backup and it's a perfect backup if not a primary meter. It's a little on the big size but it's worth the weight.

    Sorry for the name misspelling I should have typed Johnnywalker. Some days I just can't type worth a darn. Verizon is on and off this time of day and is very frustrating which is no help either. I missed spell checking too because I was in a hurry to avoid being cut off.

    I doubt that any light meters are collectable in the usual sense. Many photographers accumulate them, but I have never heard of anyone collecting them.

    The Luna Pro F manual

    The manual that came with my LPF was quite comprehensive and touted itself to be a "complete course in photography" or something similar. It covers "multiple pop" exposure and bellows extension and a basic zone system for metering. The location of the manual eludes me but I can say that my Luna Pro F has worked well for the 21 years that I've owned it. I used it a lot in my former studio for metering flash. One can obtain some beautiful vintage and later model meters off ePay for outrageously low prices. I recently purchased a pristine digital Ultra Pro with leather case and manual for $60.00.
