Using declination angle of the sun to set up equatorial platform for solar cooking.

This shows how to use simple tools to set up an equatorial platform. Declination angle tables are available at http://www.wsanford.com/~wsanford/exo/sundials/DEC_Sun.html I have set up equatorial mount in the past and I was not happy with measuring my accuracy and with my ability to adjust it. With equatorial platform, I should be able to measure errors much more easily and tweak thing more easily too. This will be the platform for my cone solar parabolic. But it could also be used as the platform for a box cooker. Once your box is aimed at the sun, you just rotate to re aim the thing.
