In 2019, the Astronomical Observatory had 48 full-time employees and 11 part-time employees. A total of 59 employees, including 34 scientists, including 24 full-time (6 doctors of sciences and 16 candidates of sciences) and 10 part-time employees (1 doctor and 3 candidates of sciences). The observatory consists of the Department of Astrophysics (Head of the Department, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Professor VI Zhdanov), the Department of Astrometry and Small Bodies of the Solar System (Head of the Department, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Lukyanyk IV.), and 2 observation stations (the village of Lisnyky, the village of Pylypovychi). During the year, 4 budget topics were implemented. The main scientific results. The active nuclei of galaxies have been identified, which are potential sources of extremely high-energy cosmic rays, taking into account energy losses and the influence of magnetic fields on the way to Earth (distance up to 300 million light-years). A large array of observational data of small bodies of the solar system on the 6th (SAO RAS), 4.1th SOAR (Chile), 2.6th (KrAO), 2nd (Terskol), 2nd (OPTICON), 1.3th (AI SAN), 0.70th and 0.48th (v. Lisnyky) telescopes. The reliability of Stokes diagnostics methods of small-scale magnetic fields of the Sun’s photosphere in the interpretation of spectropolarimetric observations of the infrared line Si I 1082.7 nm on modern (VTT, SST, GREGOR) and future (DKIST, EST with a diameter of 4 m) ground telescopes estimated. Published 2 monographs, 65 scientific articles, 25 of them in foreign publications; made 75 reports at scientific conferences.
