In 2020, the Astronomical Observatory had 58 employees, of which 48 full-time and 10 part-time, scientists – 34 (6 doctors of sciences and 17 candidates of sciences). During the year, 4 budget and 3 contractual topics were implemented. The main scientific results. It is shown that the observed gamma radiation of the TeV range around the SGR 1900 + 14 magnetar – a neutron star with a superpowerful magnetic field – can be generated by two related sources: the undiscovered Hypernova residue, which generated SGR 1900 + 14 and / or the magnetar-wind nebula generated by this magnetar. As part of the implementation of joint international research projects, observations were made at the 6th BTA (SAO RAS), the 2nd HST (India), the 2.6th ZTSh (KrAO), the 2nd (Terskol), the 1.3th (Slovakia) and others telescopes, which resulted in a large array of photometric, polarimetric and spectral data of 9 comets, 6 asteroids, 8 satellites of Jupiter and Saturn and 1 centaur. According to the research results, 2 monographs, 76 scientific articles were published, 72 reports were made at scientific conferences.
