# Tip 1: How to determine the azimuth compass

for proper orientation on the ground and achieve the desired direction of travel with a compass is necessary to determine the magnetic azimuth .Magnetic bearing - located horizontal angle measured clockwise from the magnetic meridian (the direction to the north magnetic pole) to the direction of the object.The magnetic azimuth and can be from 0 to 360 degrees.There are forward and reverse magnetic azimuth , used respectively for movement to a selected object or from the opposite direction.
Guide
1
For magnetic azimuth and hold the compass horizontally in the left hand.With his right hand, remove the brake, holding the compass.Rotate the compass housing until you get matching north (marked in blue) end of the arrow with the zero mark of the scale.Then, rotate the ring to the sighting to match the line of sight with the remote and well-visible object, structure or tree.Make countdown azimuth but on this subject.Counting do from zero scale clockwise until the numbers on the scale, opposi
te the pointer viewfinder.
2
Proper alignment of the reticle line with the line in the direction of the selected object does, several times looking from the line of the reticle on the object and back.Do not lift your eyes to the compass, so easy to degrade the accuracy of the azimuth determination well.Use special compasses, such as system Andrianova, for more precision magnetic azimuth well.
3
If you want to move the selected object in the opposite direction, define the reverse magnetic azimuth .To this add 180 degrees to direct the azimuth y, if the digital value is less than 180 degrees or 180 degrees, subtract, if the digital value is greater than 180 degrees.
4
To properly determine the direction of the previously acquired magnetic azimuth from rotating viewfinder ring, align the pointer with the number on the scale equal to the previously defined magnetic azimuth and .Then remove the brake and rotating the compass housing compass, achieve coincidence of the northern edge of the arrow with the zero mark of the scale.Line scooter will determine the right direction.To further mark the movement of the reticle line well marked detached landmark.

# Tip 2: How to know the azimuth

every once in his life had a walk in the woods and think about what to do if you get lost.You can navigate the terrain in different ways, many ways, the most common - a compass and a well-viewed items surrounding countryside.

Azimut - is the angle between the direction of which is formed on a highly visible area of ​​the subject area and to the north. Azimut s calculated in the clockwise direction and the magnitude of their - from 0 to 360 degrees.To determine the magnetic bearing of the object, take a compass and stand face to the designated object.
2
Place the compass on a horizontal flat surface facing up and turn to the left and right until the compass needle is magnetized blue end is not in alignment with the letter C. This is the direction of the north.
3
now on the glass cover of the compass put a match so that one end of it passed through the center of the compass, and the other would be directed to the selected subject areas.Take a look through the glass at the bottom of the compass and read a number that is at the outer end of the match.This figure shows the value of the azimuth.

Azimut can be determined even on the map.To do this, put the side edge of the compass card, turn the map so that its lateral edge coincided with the direction of the magnetic compass needle to the north.The upper edge of the map must be the letter S. Then find the point on the map with which to begin the movement, connect it to a straight line with the object to which you want to reach.After the move the compass so that its focus was on the starting point.The bar on the map is located opposite the specific figures on the compass, which shows the azimuth.
5
Azimut , calculated in terms of standing for the area, called the direct magnetic azimuth.To find a way back, often use the term back azimuth, which is 180 degrees different from the straight.To determine the inverse azimuth, must be added to direct the azimuth of 180 degrees, if it is less than 180 degrees;or subtracted if it is more than 180 degrees.
