    Thanks for the Video, Well done on your suncompass

    The reason it was slightly out is your sun compass points to true North and your Brunton compass points to magnetic north

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you very much! Yea I will do more explaining on magnetic declination and such when i reach the land navigation portion.

    Well that is where the sun dial comes into play. It is similar to the sun compass however it casts a wide shadow across the board.

    great job brother. could you also mark the needle shadow length to tell what time it is?

  10. morgy71373 says:

    dont forget . your compass will not exactly match the sun compass because of magnetic declination of what area in the us you live . but i have to say you did an OUTSTANDING!! job with this 5 star .
