Comes with it`s revolving stand which is nice to see as they are often missing. Comes to you in excellent condition and appears in good working order. Photometers of the flicker type are of particular use where it is necessary to compare the intensities of two sources of light, as light enters at each side of the photometer. The distance between the photometer and one of the sources of light can be adjusted (ie you move the light) until the two light sources appear equally bright when viewed through the photometer. The ratio of the intensities from the distances from each light to the photometer can then be calculated. We strive very hard to offer a fast and efficient service at all times.
