Introduction: Sun Compass Video

I have just changed the video.  This is  the MARK 2 version.   I have learned from making the first solar compass  and this is the result.
It is a much simpler easier to build and probably more accurate solar compass.
The video shows a solar compass design.  It is based on equatorial mount.  Equatorial mount is an axis parallel to the earth's axis of rotation and lines up with north/south and is used for telescopes to point at the sun or stars all day with constant rotation.  In this case, you do not know exactly where North/south is but you use the other details of the equatorial mount equation to find  that line.
