    I have to admit, you are right that in no meter manual that compensating for that Tele-attachment is hinted at. But you find it in the manual of that attachment.
    Keep in mind that the compensation varies for continuous- and flash-lighting.

    The later, black, model, has got a sticker at its underside clearly indicating that compensation adjustment. I don't know about the earlier grey model, but I assume it got it too.

    The manuals seem to have be written for folks who already know what they are doing. Some help that is, eh? My grey spot attachment does not indicate the compensation because it was originally intended for use with the Luna Pro, which has color-coded index marks so knowing the compensation values is less important. So all one needs to remember is red circle in the viewfinder, red spot attachment setting, and red index mark on the meter... or green, green, green.

    Seemingly Gossen did not want to set even more signs on the dial when they introduced the Profisix. And they introduced a new version Tele-attachment with an informative sticker.
    Those who already owned that older attachment, that did not need such sticker, and took it to use with their new meter were already aware of that necessity for compensation.
    So that issue of missing information only applied for the used market, and one hardly can blame Gossen for not caring for that.

    The gray version does not have any sticker and the Luna Lux does not have the green mark and the red indicates the unadjusted position.

    The Luna Lux (Lunalite) is a later model (kind of simplified Profisix) and then there already had been those black attachments with that sticker.

    Ya, in hindsight it is interesting that they made a system that was backward compatible but didn't put a red and green dot on the exposure compensation dial. That is such a "nobrainer" that I might open a business to re-fit LunaLux's with compensation dots... but somehow I think there might not be too much need any more. Me and my Sharpies!

    Hmmm, placing red and green dots on meter ... I wonder where I can find some.

    I added colored peelable stickers.
