Controls for Observation periscope on Type VII

Hey Guys, iam very curious if anybody of you has an answer for me.

Iam searching for any clue that would explain, how the observation periscope in a type VII u-boat was raised and lowered. I know that there were hydraulic motors which raised and lowered the periscope, but i cant find a single hint on how this was controlled. Was there a lever, a switch or something similar for that?
I hope that someone of you can help me out here.

Best wishes,
Nils
