It looks like it is being repaired or serviced so the pointers could be in their "off" positions while the crew work on the range finder.
Ummmhhh.... I don´t think. The Kdo-Ger.36 did not have this type the dial pointers

Hi Sturm

The handwheels and other bits look like it is a Kdo-Ger.36. I cannot locate a photo of one with the dial pointers. Could they have been added after radar was included in the battery? The crew of the Kdo-Ger using the pointers to align the Kdo-Ger to the same bearings as the radar?

Yes, Berkog IV m/29 according to a Finnish source.
While being advanced as being able to deal with objects flying up to 560 km/h, it was a very compilcated: it for instance needed nine operators.

My best guess would be an early "Hazemeyer", based on those handwheels.
