Sachtler DV 6 SB: where is little light?

Hi,
Not urgent... but I just got a DV 6 SB, and I can't for the life of me figure out where the "illumination" is. The button battery is in place, and I suspect the battery powers a light so I can see the bubble to level the tripod at night... but I can't find any little button to press, nor do I see a light that might turn on.
Can anyone direct me to it? (the user manual doesn't help, by the way, except to direct me to the battery-holder).
Cheers, Malcolm

Try tapping the leveling bubble, that should turn on the illumination.

Thanks Jeremiah... you beat me to it. I was just re-reading the manual, and in fact it does indeed refer to this (my mistake). Cool feature. Thank you for the post. Malcolm
