really dont feel the need to go back to the rigours of "basic trig".
this google apps - linear measurement - is quite accurate.it includes the sags and drops in measurements.
anyhow, heres another screen shot and i will put in some data for you to work it out and reconcile with google data.
(orientation - Due North).
the object itself is perched on a slope of the southern outer rim of a crater.
i extended the trajectory of the shadow and it would seem that the sun's is somewhere on the 10 O'clock
position and with a 35 degree of inclination,roughly.
now maybe you would like to do your basic trigo with these additional data.
