    Re: Azimuth diagram bei Hanno IX

    now I think I got it. Since I know my latitude and the dec of the sun I know that it is eather north or south of me.

    Lets say it is south from me, from  just locking at were the sun is, I know that it is E or W from me.

    Than the value z from the diagramm leeds to the azimuth a=180-z if it is E from me or a=180+z if it is west from me.

    For north it would be a=z if the sun ist E and a=360-z if the sun is west of me.

    Am I correct ?

    Best regards.
