You can use the sun same way as you use a star at night Ron.

Obviously it isn't as accurate as using the stars but you can get it pretty close.

I will check and adjust tonight on Polaris.

Don't think it will work on the moon.

Did not work on the sun that great either. When I finally got to see Polaris it was bloody miles out ?
