High-statistics $\pi^{-}\pi^{-}$ HBT data for non-central Au + Au collisions at 1.23$A$ GeV, measured with HADES at SIS18/GSI, are presented. The three-dimensional emission source is studied in dependence on pair transverse momentum and centrality. A tilt of the source relative to the beam axis is observed. The spatial extension and the tilt magnitude of the source decrease with transverse momentum. The spatial extension decreases and the tilt magnitude increases going from central to peripheral collisions. The derived eccentricity perpendicular to the beam axis fits well to the initial nucleonic overlap region at high transverse momentum.
