    I would like to suggest an alternative to Sun's declination curve -- sun
    declination scale (see attachment). It takes less space and shows sun
    declination for 4 consequtive years, (2008-2011), but, I guess, it can
    be used long term too.
    The accuracy (~05') is not that great, but can be improved by splitting
    each scale into 4 pieces instead of 2.
    (At this stage scale needs work close to the ends. I have'nt figured out
    how to make it look good. Suggestions?)
