At Solar Noon it is pointing directly true South, AFAIK.
Are you saying that if you are North of the Tropic of Capricorn (as I am being just North of Cairns) that this method won’t work? I was hoping to use this method as I have no clear view of the SCP and so much steel around where I set up that a magnetic compass is unreliable😒.
