Speaking of Sundials....

Dear Fellow Loungers,

I am in India at the moment for a month long sojourn.  Last week I passed through a horological garden featuring sundials accurate to 20 seconds.

My Dual Time is a bit more portable however...!

Best regards to all

Hi Doc, The photo shows the Giant Sundial of Jantar Mantar in Jaipur, India.  It is also known as the Samrat Yantra (The Supreme Instrument), stands 27m tall.  According to wikipedia, its shadow moves visibly at 1 mm per second, or roughly a hand's breadth (6 cm) every minute! I have many pictures of my travels so far on my blog site www.jamesto.multiply.com Best regards JAMES
Thanks James, as Alex I think it's a marvellous pic,
