    Lu,

    The Nomogram (see link) gives the azimuth at the left after a line is drawn from a starting point at the declination on the right which then passes through the intersection point of two curves using the values of altitude and latitude. In the example: latitude is 15* altitude is 75* declination is 24* and the azimuth is 50* ( 310* ). The Rust diagram uses hour angle, declination, and altitude to do the same thing. Give them both a try and pick the one that you like best or keep both graphs with the Nautical Almanac.
