Celestial basic catalogues are a prerequisite for the choice of absolute positions and motions in house. almost immediately, positional astrometry is on the watershed among classical basic catalogues, in accordance with relocating reference stars, and sleek catalogues, in line with extragalactic reference gadgets with non-measurable movement. This publication addresses the recommendations and techniques of the respective development suggestions resulting in the stellar body of the FK5 (Fifth primary Catalogue) and to the newly followed extragalactic radio reference body, ICRF (International Celestial Reference Frame), with its extension to optical wavelengths via the Hipparcos Catalogue. whereas valuable outlines of meridian circle observations are given, emphasis is installed a few aspect at the VLBI procedure as utilized to astrometry, and to the observational options utilized in the Hipparcos challenge, together with the tie of the initially non-anchored inflexible Hipparcos sphere into the ICRF.

The motion of the equator under the influence of luni-solar precession. : ecliptic longitude, S: star position, A, S': its projections on the equator and ecliptic, respectively respect to the ecliptic, and change slowly due to the relative motions of the three bodies. In elaborating the causes of precession and nutation we consider, for simplicity, the Earth as a homogeneous sphere with the equatorial bulge resting on the sphere between the poles. If we had to cope only with the underlying perfect sphere, the members of the solar system could not exert any torques on the Earth for reasons of symmetry with respect to the attracting bodies.

Xl, x 2 , x 3 ) are the An interesting question raised by definitions 1) and 2) concerns the equivalence of the inertial frames represented by the solar system on the one hand and by distant extragalactic objects on the other. 27-33. As inferrable from definition 3), the General Theory of Relativity casts new light on the question of inertial frames. Because of the distribution of matter we cannot expect the existence of a unique global inertial frame, but only quasi-inertial frames for finite regions.

19) for the purpose of linearization. , the source positions, Earth orientation parameters, station coordinates, environmental parameters, etc. So, in the extreme, an estimation process builds up for many thousands of unknowns. In combining data from Very Long Baseline Interferometry (VLBI) and Lunar Laser Ranging (LLR), Charlot et al. 20 mas/yr to the IAU adopted luni-solar precession (IAU 1977). 7 Conventional Stellar Celestial Reference Systems Absolute astrometry of stars was traditionally intimately connected with observations using meridian circles or transit circles and, therefore, it should not be surprising that the equator plays a dominant role as the fundamental plane.
