Corrections to the measured values of azimuth and zenith distance should therefore be computed.
For the reduction of observation data from astronomical to geodetic horizontal coordinate system, the values of azimuth and zenith distance in a formula (1) should be corrected by corrections (2) and (3).
For this reason, this non-coincidence must be taken into account to deduce zenith distance.
