Setting Circle Printing...

I recently purchased a new dob (12"). I am adding manual setting circles. For the azimuth circle I need a compass ring that is 25" in diameter.

I would like to print these on a laser printer, realizing that I will end up with multiple sheets that need to be pasted together.

I found the SETCIRC.exe program on the www.startrak.co.uk website, but it just creates a giant protractor and not the actual circle.

Any ideas on programs (that are windows based) that will print out an accurate azimuth circle for me? Any other suggestions would be welcome as well.

Thanks,
Dave
