 Part B.   How to Aim the de l’Est Observatoire Solaire Radio Telescope
 Step 3. Remove the lower bolt.  Adjust the angle so that the 45° mark aligns with the center of the nut.
 N = day of the year = cumulative days + day of the month   January              N = day of the month February            N = 31 + day of the month March                 N = 59 + day of the month (for non-leap year) April                   N = 90 + day of the month May                    N = 120 + day of the month June                    N = 151 + day of the month July                    N = 181 + day of the month August                N = 212 + day of the month September          N = 243 + day of the month October               N = 273 + day of the month November          N = 304 + day of the month December          N = 334 + day of the month   For leap years, 2016, etc., add one to the cumulative days for March or later months)

 sin (θ) = h/D, or, θ = arcsin(h/D) = arcsin(minor axis/major axis).
 Step 4. Blue wedge in flat position and dish is aimed at the horizon.
 Step 5. Blue wedge adjusted to an angle equal to the latitude.  Dish is now aimed at the celestial equator.      The next step, 7: To aim the dish at the sun, tip the dish an angle equal to the sun’s declination.
