    I inherited a small Soligor strobe, MK 24ASII without an instruction
    manual. The Soligor web site doesn't even list this model which I'm
    sure is several years old, and doesn't offer downloads of the manuals

    There are several items on the back side of the unit.

    There's a calculator dial with various ASA and DIN values, distances,
    and f/stops.

    There's also a 5-position slide switch. The positions are labeled M
    (white), A (blue), A (green), A (red), and a white star. I have no
    idea whatever what these labels mean.

    The is a two-position slide swith labeled ON and OFF. I figured
    this one out.

    There is a READY/TEST light which lit up when I put fresh batteries
    into the unit and turned it on. There's another light labeled C. L.
    the purpose of which I have no idea.

    On the front there is what appears to be a tiny lens, probably for an
    electric eye or autofocus device.

    The flash unit itself swivels from straight up to straight forward
    (the unit is constructed on an angle so when fastened to a shoe on top
    of a camera, the unit leans forward a bit)

    There's a shoe mount but it isn't a hot shoe.

    I can't find where a flash cord would connect except for a very small
    hole on the left side. It might be for a micro plug; I can't tell.

    Does anyone have any ideas where I might pick up a manual? And, does
    anyone have any information or comments about this unit, good or bad?
