Abstract:

A method is described of adjusting the position of the Artificial Earth Satellites to stars which was based on drawing the daily parallels of stars based on the observation of their transit through the lines of the reticle in the field of view of tube AT-1 and on determining the differences of the coordinates of these stars and the point at which the intersection of the sputnik was made.
