    Gossen Luna Pro Spot attachment and a Gossen Luna Lux SBC question

    I just received a Gossen Luna Pro Spot Attachment. I also have a Luna Lux SBC which has a sliding incident light dome. The dome is in the way and I have to see if it can be removed and put back in without damage. Any ideas are welcome.

    I wouldn't try removing the dome. Scary! I use that attachment on a Luna Pro (the old one, not SBC) and the dome needs to be positioned "just so" for the attachment to be attached. If slid all of the way to the end it seems not to fit but if slid just a bit back toward center it should fit -- at least mine does. I never use the attachment with the meter in the case, BTW.

    Thanks Brian! I moved the dome away from the edge a little and then it attached! It even works correctly!

    I use the same attachment for both sbc and regular luna pros.

    It's been a long time since i used em but i think you have to compensate by one stop... Look up the instructios on the Gossen site.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    I don't know about the SBC but on the Luna Pro there are color coded marks (yellow and green triangles I think) to use for the different angle of view on the spot attachment, which is also color coded. It might be one stop for the 15 degree setting, 2 stops for the 7.5 degree setting.

    Edit; After googling images for the SBC, I didn't see any color coded marks on it.

    I have the SBC with the led lights. One group on the internet says to compensate +1 1/3 EV for 15° and +3 EV for 7.5°. The other group says that the meter automatically compensates for the attachment.

    "One group" is correct; "the other group" not so much.

    On the attachment should be a sticker with those correction figures. On the Gossen site you'll find the manuals anyway.

    Mark Twain said that there are two types of people. The first type divides people into two groups. The second type does not.
