Abstract
We present preliminary results of the astrometric sky survey made in 2001–2005 with the meridian circle (MAC) of the Main Astronomical Observatory of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and Astronomical Observatory of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. About 2.1 million ofphotocenter positions were measured for 0.65 million of V < 17 mag stars near the equatorial zone δ=0°÷+2°. Besides, about 360 thousand of objects with a single detection were identified with CMC14 catalogue stars. The estimated precision of positions is 50–80 mas for stars brighter then 14 V-band magnitude, and 80–200 mas for yet faint stars.

Keywords
CCD observation, astrometric catalogue of star, star photometry.
