HI
I'm making a sun follower with a pic, and I need the formulas to calculate the position of the sun, I need to calculate azimuth angle and zenith angle (Is that enough to know at any time the position of the sun???). Thanks

How accurate a 'fix' are you looking for? Formulas with practical accuracies can be found in the book, "Astronomical Algorithms" by Jean Meeus.
