The Gossen Starlite has a compact, ergonomic, all-weather design for use in any climate. Attractively styled, this meter is comfortable in shape and size to hold and operate. The simple operating controls, which are logically positioned, make the meter easy to understand and use both for the experienced professional and the dedicated amateur.
