In 2022, the Astronomical Observatory had 72 employees, including 51 full-time and 21 part-time workers, 40 scientists (11 doctors of science and 15 candidates of science), including 20 full-time and 20 part-time workers. During the year, 5 budget topics were implemented. Main scientific results. The observational data of the Tycho Brahe supernova remnant (SN 1572), which were obtained by the Chandra space X-ray observatory, were analyzed. According to the observation data, a residual map was created for different photon energy ranges, in particular for the thermal continuum (4.1–6.0 keV) and the Si (1.6–2.1 keV) and S (2.3–2.6 keV) lines. The modernization of the observation base in the village has begun. Foresters: purchased a new Moravian C4-16000 CCD camera with a block of light filters and UBVRI filters of the Johnson-Cousins photometric system for the AZT-8 telescope; an optical reducer, a block of narrow-band filters and design documentation for a block of wide-band filters for the AZT-14 telescope were developed and manufactured; on the basis of the purchased Celestron Advanced VX 11 telescope with GOTO system and CCD cameras of the Atik Infinity ATK0144 series, a mobile complex was created for observing the phenomena of star coverage by asteroids. Based on the results of the research, 3 monographs, one study guide, 74 scientific articles, and 47 reports at scientific conferences were published.
