Hey all. I'm a cinematography student, still learning the basics. I recently got a used Gossen Luna-Pro analog light meter and was wondering how to use it. I can't find anything online other than extremely vague instructions. If anyone has a meter like this and can give me some instructions from their experiences with it I would really appreciate it. I've also been using digital light meters so I'm not familiar with "zero-ing out" the meter or whatever, plus lining up the shutter speed, ASA, etc. So many numbers and notches...

Thanks!

I bought an old Lunasix-3 recently which is very similar, and found it entirely non-intuitive to use at first glance. Once I tracked down the manual however, it turned out to be pretty straightforward. The site below (not mine, I hasten to add) has a scan of the manual for your luna-pro.
