ASTROMETRICAL STATION OF THE ALPES DE HAUTE-PROVENCE - S2A

The Observatory of HAUTE-PROVENCE has many telescopes among them telescope of 120 and telescope of 80 cm that we use in astrometry, thanks to CCD receivers and the most recent star catalogues. We carry out astrometric observation campaigns followed by the solar system bodies. The produced images are measured, reduced and allow to supply the astrometric data bases used to adjust the dynamic models of the movement of the observed bodies and to build of high precision ephemerides.

Photometric observations are also practised for star occultations by asteroids and for Jupiter and Saturn satellites phenomena within the international campaigns.
