Celestial basic catalogues are a prerequisite for the selection of absolute positions and motions in house. almost immediately, positional astrometry is on the watershed among classical primary catalogues, in line with relocating reference stars, and smooth catalogues, in keeping with extragalactic reference gadgets with non-measurable movement. This ebook addresses the thoughts and techniques of the respective development options resulting in the stellar body of the FK5 (fifth basic catalogue) and to the newly followed extragalactic radio reference body, ICRF (international celestial reference frame), with its extension to optical wavelengths through the Hipparcos Catalogue. whereas imperative outlines of meridian circle observations are given, emphasis is installed a few element at the VLBI method as utilized to astrometry, and to the observational ideas utilized in the Hipparcos undertaking, together with the tie of the initially non-anchored inflexible Hipparcos sphere into the ICRF.
