 hi everybody

 update on the sunshine recorder

 I finished the project , Someone else is also making the same project and suggest to have a white outer casing on the tube
I've used a piece of White  downspout piping .There are two rubber rings on the black  tube To form a spacer, the white tube fits  tightly over them ,I've added a solar panel to trickle charge the three Rechargeable AA batteries , This makes it totally self-contained

I've also added a  datalogger to record sunshine duration and a digital time counter Which counts  the Time in hours  , minutes and seconds

The analogue clock version works perfectly, using the datalogger gives more data which can be Using a graph
