Thre translational condition only exist on the plane to the celestial axis not in the ecliptic axis of rotation itself!..There are two aspects here....... ......That is the whole point of the drawings. There is a roational condition every 24 hours over the course of a year. (see attached) However in the last drawings that i provided (attached) that translational motion to the celestial but not in the ecliptic does not have the same effect as the bottom drawing. The two are not equivilent views! One is looking at the same rotation annauly as nightly the other is rotation on a differnt axis while simply looking in a different direction. The two are not equivilent and thereofre canont produce the same effects. You can't simply appeal to one then turn and focus on the other when the problems with it are pointed out. Regner T I assure you that I am not being a pedant but I have to raise another point with you. It concerns this para - It is also clear that if the camera is mounted at another angle (still fixed) the camera will point at great circles around the celestial poles, both during the day and during the year (taking pictures every [tropical] solar day). I have a problem with your usage of 'great circles'. Do you mean 'parallels of celestial latitude'? As I say, pedantry for its own sake, is petty. I ask because my knowledge is -- in the great scheme of things -- sketchy, and when confronted with something which conflicts with that present knowledge, I suffer the symptoms of analogously having the ground move under my feet. So basically -- do I have to learn something new?

First of all, the clear and short question by Jack, could have been answered with 12 words: "The camera positions should be the same as in the HC drawing." I can't actually find an answer to Jack's question in the 364 words that Allen just spent. Second, the HC part of Allen's figure: http://vatceo.phys.au.dk/horde/imp/message.php?index=7668 beautifully shows what Paul, Philip and I have been trying to say for quite a while now, and I just can't figure out how Allen's words can correspond to that figure. It shows the camera, fixed w.r.t. the Earth, taking pictures at midnight, at three different points in the orbit around the Sun. The figure makes it clear to me, that the camera points towards Polaris in all three cases, throughout the year, and also that it will do so at any time during the day. It is also clear that if the camera is mounted at another angle (still fixed) the camera will point at great circles around the celestial poles, both during the day and during the year (taking pictures every [tropical] solar day). No rotation around the ecliptic axis! By the way - spin and rotation is the same, I have never said anything to the contrary. An orbit, does however, not need to involve a rotation/ spin, but can be purely translational - as shown in Allen's figure.
