We describe the results of the astrometric sky surveys with the telescope MAC which were performed in 2001-2015. We observed stars near the equator and stars in the fields with radio-sources which are the ICRF objects. Observations were initiated by the Main Astronomical observatory of NAS of Ukraine and Astronomical observatory of Taras Shevchenko Kiev national University. We obtained three catalogues of positions and V-magnitudes, КМАС1, КМАС2, and КМАС3. They can be used as reference high-precision catalogues actual for practical use till the creation of new space-mission catalogues like Gaia.
