I did some searching and the only thing I found for the Luna specifically was this online auction that was completed in 2011: Rare Russian Luna (Lubitel) Twin Lens Reflex Camera (04/27/2011)

The Luna seemed to be one of the variations the Soviets made of the Lubitel. Here's what I found about the models of Russian-made TLR: Soviet and Russian Cameras - Lubitel and Russian TLRs

You might also check out or contact this site: Fedka Web Site He deals in the Soviet-made cameras. I bought my Lubitel and Zorki from him. No Lunas, but he might have more information.

From the few minutes I've taken to poke around the Internets, it looks like it's going to be very difficult to find.

Interesting. That is the exact picture. Reading a few posts before that, I saw this:...

Oops, tried to cut and paste but apparently the text color is white and for some reason I can't change it here.

Anyway, the point was that Lomo made several Lubitel TLRs with no name plate that were intended for foreign export. The Luna nameplate was intended for the cameras sold in Greece.

Thank you for the link.

Here's another link to the Soviet Cams website: Soviet and Russian Cameras - Lubitel-2 I thought at first it was the same site that I had just linked to, but it's slightly different. The first one I posted was just about Soviet-made TLRs in general. This one is specifically about the Lubitel 2 and it's variations. About 3/4 down the page, you see "PK 1420" which is the 'no name' version, and then scroll to the last camera on the page and you'll see "PK 1455 Camera identical to PK1420 "No-Name" version (see above), but under export name "LUNA". Intended for Greece market. Very uncommon to find. The picture of sample below was found in private collection in Greece."

Since your location indicates you're in Greece, perhaps you'll have a chance to find a Luna specifically, but if you are more interested in the camera itself and not just the nameplate, just start looking for a Lubitel 2.
