    Pocket sun dial.

    No affiliation but I'm attracted to these, anyone tried one yet?

    The quality doesn't look great tbh. I do rather like the Nomos Sundial Ring.




    I made an AstroMedia cardboard model universal equinoctial ring dial which was a lot of fun.

    How do you set the latitude on the Nomos ring?

    You have to buy one specific to your latitude (or mathematically adjust accordingly).

    Versions are listed as available for latitudes of Glashütte, Chicago, Istanbul, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, New York and Zürich. I'll bet that 'New York' and 'Madrid' are identical and also 'Istanbul' and 'Chicago'.

    Edit - maybe also 'Glashütte' and 'London'. These things aren't going to be terribly accurate.
