    That isn't a spot meter, not really all that useful for long exposures when you're standing on a bridge trying to expose for a light 8 streets away... or the water down below etc...

    I enjoy night shoting but it is very frustrating with my Pentax SM, the reading doesn't lock so I can read the very faint scale even when using the built nite lite.

    But my go to meter for night work is my Gossen Luna. Pro SBC. It locks the needle, zero meter style so I can use a headlamp to take my readings off the dial.

    BTW if my old memory serves me well, this was rated as one of the most sensitive on the streets.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    I would recommend the Sekonic L-358 http://www.sekonic.com/products/l-358/overview.aspx it will read from EV2 and the digital display lights up automatically in low light so it's very easy to read.

    Rolleicord Va: Humble.
    Agfa Isolette III: Amazingly simple, yet it produces outstanding negatives.
    Holga 120GFN: EV 11 or EV 12.

    Lunapro SBC is the best for ultra low light. Besides, it only needs a standard 9 volt battery rather than an exotic, hard to find one.
