    Hello,

        2nd version od DSSC-like device. Better scales but still old pointers (1° resoution). Results for February, 15th:

    • 51N 17E: 07:08 and 17:06 versus 07:05 and 17:07. Mean error 2min.
    • 38S 145W: 06:50 and 20:20 vs 06:49 and 20:17. Mean error 2min.

    I think that with more accurate scales for pointers (0.5°) one can get quite reasonable results.

    Also I changed latitudes range from 80S to 80N. The original DSSC works within the range 60S to 60N.

    Best wishes,

    Rafal
