    Hello Mr. LeRoy,
    
    I don't know of any on-line sources, however, I use my handy Celesticomp
    navigation computer when swinging my compass with a shadow pin. By now, (at
    the risk of speaking heresy) most navigators should have some kind of
    electronic navigation calculator. Failing that, you can always manually
    calculate the sun's azimuth using the formulas and a regular calculator with
    trig functions.
    
    Robert
