We describe the results of the astrometric sky survey with the telescope MAC which was performed in 2010–2014 by the Main Astronomical observatory of NAS of Ukraine and Astronomical observatory of Taras Shevchenko Kiev national University. We obtained about 6 million of images of the sky objects to 17m in equatorial zone δ = +2°÷+5.5°. All images were obtained during 188 night observational series with use of V-band filter. Now we obtained the preliminary version of KMAC2.0 catalogue. We estimate that precision of positions for bright V<14m stars is 50–90 milliarcsecond and for fainter 14m<V<16m stars it is about 80–250 milliarcsecond.
