Tracking Mechanism Sketch

Tracking Mechanism Sketch

The third requirement is: both the north-south "daily" center line of rotation and the east-west seasonal line of rotation must pass through the focal area. This will maintain the focal area in a fixed position. The north-south axial pipes and wood beams with bearing holes must not block the flow of solar energy. A heavy brick oven with a pyrex baking dish cover or plastic cover can be placed under this focal area. Solar energy will heat the pyrex dish for tortillas and heat the oven for goat stew. I built the tracking mechanism. It works. Thanks to the US Coast Guard Academy for teaching celestial navigation. Lincoln Kraeuter, Jensen Beach, FL, USA
