We won't be able to use it in the British Isles unfortunately. Especially this year. I'm not sure how the mechanism works. I am however, sure that a sun dial is not crude.

You might sharpen your ability with comparisons to a nautical almanac. What I can't understand is that he gets a figure-eight not a curve or "S" shape.
