It's actually CdS and stands for Cadmium Sulphide. You'll probably get a manual from Oldtimer Cameras, but the meter probably isn't worth more than about £10.
yup nearly a tenner for the manual, i was of the thought i may as well buy a new meter as pay a tenner.... unless theyre good or something.
Check which button cells it takes before spending any money. Some of the older meters, like the Sinarsix, take mercury button cells which have been banned for environmental reasons. PM me with the cell type and I'll look it up in my Mallory data book.
A light meter shouldn't need instructions. If it isn't obvious, ask a more experienced friend to show you.
Google got me this info on the battery, so possibly a mercury cell as William suggests.
i came accross some other type of cell, suposed to reduce the voltage to 1.35v, sy cant remember wher, it was admist a longgggggg search.
(i nearly bought a 3,5v,,,nearly.)
