    Re: Star finder, 2102-D, further modification

    thank you, Gary

    I was already starting to like you,(a few months ago)

    I traced the ecliptic with the Nautical Almanac and marked the position of the sun every ten days for the year.

    To the moon and the planet I stick with small "post'it" draggable.

    I'm still looking how to take advantage of the alignment of the equation of time as in your picture
    For time (UT or local) I made with the nautical almanac additional annotation in pencil,
    the picture is very dirty because I've done much running these days
    and the pencil does not like fingers.

    The book published by David Burch (star-finder book) explains why the ecliptic have not drawn on the 2102-D but I can not find the page today (I'll read it again) but I guess it changes with the precession of equinox?

    Thank you for your research
    you made me love the 2102-D
