    Excellent results.
    
    I finally upgraded to a Nikon D7000 and have a manual focus Nikkor
    200mm.  With the smaller array the 200mm has a field of view equivalent
    a 300mm lens.
    
    David Burch's "Emergency Navigation" has a simplified method of drawing
    a circle around the sun, and comparing the current diameter of sun to
    the pixel count.
    
    If I recall you and Marcel went to considerably more effort calibrating
    lenses and pixel counts, including the use of quadratic equations.
    
    I do not remember reading a "cookbook" explanation of your calibration
    method. If does exist online, would you please point me to it.  If not,
    would you consider publishing it?
    
    Thanks
