Gossen Lunasix 3, although built in the 1960s is a very capable hand-held meter even by today standards.

The meter movement and operating mechanism are mechanical, however the CdS light cell requires battery power. Measurement is made by depressing the rocker switch in one direction for low light, and the other for daylight. When the rocker is released the needle remains clamped in place making transfer of the reading to the "computer" ring much easier.

We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
