I really want that Auto Strobonar.
Séamuis, if you ever find one on the bay, make sure it has the rechagable pack and not the setup for the 510v battery. That battery was about $30-40 in 1975 when I was using the Strobonar 880. Now days, when you can find the battery, it's around $100. And the battery doesn't last very long between shoots and is not rechargable.

I have the Strobanar 710 that I got for $11. It had everything including filters. It would work plugged up but would hold a charge for only 1 flash. I checked the pack and it was corroded. I ordered 4 sub-C cells that have the tabs. I got them on monday. If a get some time this weekend, I'm going to solder up the new pack. The cells cost me $16 with shipping. The key is to verify what cells the pack takes and get the most suitable ones. I'll take some images of the process.
