The AEQUINOX, an all-purpose equitorial sundial which can be erected in the garden or on the balcony, rounds off our product range. Its impressive size (meridian ring circumference: 440mm, height of lower stand: 670mm, with high stand: 1400mm) makes it an eyecatcher in any surroundings. The anthracite-metallic finish and the sanded steel scale give the AEQUINOX its unique appearance.

The AEQUINOX comes with a levelling base plate. The sundial can be set up precisely horizontal using three fine-threaded knurled screws. The knurled screws are hollow and can be used to mount the sundial on the supporting surface using rawl plugs and machine screws.

The sundial can be used for latitudes between 15° N and 75° N. The latitude of the location is set to an accuracy of 0.1° using the nonius scale. The equatorial face is adjusted during manufacture to be vertical to the polar wand which is parallel to the Earth's axis. Using the illustrated manual, you can easily set up and adjust the sundial. It will then permanently display true noon at your location absolutely accurately.

We can also supply the AEQUINOX for the southern hemisphere (15° S and 75° S), in which case you will get a counterclockwise time scale. However, the delivery time is two weeks longer.
