nl azimut   coördinaten in het ware horizonsysteem. De hoek aan het zenit of de boog van de ware horizon tussen de hemelsmeridiaan en de verticale cirkel van de ster. Het azimut wordt met de wijzers van de klok mee gemeten en gebeurt in het algemeen tussen 0° en 360° vanuit het noorden via oost, zuid en west.
de Azimut Koordinate im wahren Horizontsystem. Der Winkel am Zenit oder der Bogen des wahren Horizonts zwischen dem Himmelsmeridian und dem Vertikalkreis des Gestirns. Die Zählung des Azimuts erfolgt im allgemeinen vollkreisig von 0° bis 360° von Nord über Ost, Süd und West.
en azimuth the angle formed at the zenith by the meridian of the observer and the vertical circle passing through a heavenly body. It is measured clockwise, starting from the north point, from 0° to 360°.

  The azimuth is usually measured from 000° at the reference direction clockwise through 360°. An azimuth is often designated as true, magnetic, compass grid, or relative as the reference direction is true, magnetic, compass, or grid north, or heading, respectively. Unless otherwise specified, the term is generally understood to apply to true azimuth, which may be further defined as the arc of the horizon, or the angle at the zenith, between the north part of the celestial meridian or principal vertical circle and a vertical circle, measured from 000° at the north part of the principal vertical circle clockwise through 360°. Azimuth taken directly from a table, before interpolation, is called tabulated azimuth. After interpolation, or, if determined by calculation, mechanical device, or graphics, it is called computed azimuth. When the angle is measured in either direction from north or south, and labeled accordingly, it is properly called azimuth angle; when measured either direction from east or west, and labeled accordingly, it is called amplitude. An azimuth determined by solution of the navigational triangle with altitude, declination, and latitude then is called an altitude azimuth; if meridian angle, declination, and latitude are given, it is called a time azimuth; if meridian angle, declination and altitude are given, it is called a time and altitude azimuth.
