I'm working on a project and need to find the precise location of the sun from a stationary sensor. I would use a camera but the sun would probably burn out the pixels or not be able to see the sun spot.
I have came up with a design including a lens to focus the image onto an area. Then, I think I could just have a light sensitive area where the focused image is projected. Then, find points above a certain light level, the sun.
I just don't know what sensor to use to detect the focused image. If there was such a thing that could detect light Wattage at any given point that would work or some special type of camera.
If anyone knows of a sensor that could work for the focused image from the lens or any other better way to detect the sun's location in the sky it would really help a lot.
