Does anyone know how to correctly measure exposure using a mirror lens on an old Canon A1?

Mirror lenses are fixed at usually f/8 so you have to use aperture priority which then tells the camera that f/8 is set and adjusts the shutter speed accordingly. You can then meter like you would with any other lens.
