Hello Brad.

I want you to notice that if the mirror is fixed, only S-S-O angle does not define
 exact orientation of it. Unlike the azimuth and off-nadir angles calculated by 
Heavensat or CalSky.
It would be nice even if José deliver just a time of flare maximum, I'll calculate the
 mirror. If it is fixed, it will be easy. And if it is not so, I have some ideas, but my 
programming skills do not allow me to do this.
I think it is possible to write an application to visually simulate the mirror position 
relatively to Sun, and then just search the rotation axis. Or, if it is possible, even to 
calculate axis position automatically from delivered set of angles.
If there's lot of different angle sets, I don't think they would be interesting to me for
 now, since I can't calculate something useful from them. We can just look for
 some regularity.
