Celestial primary catalogues are a prerequisite for the decision of absolute positions and motions in area. shortly, positional astrometry is on the watershed among classical basic catalogues, in response to relocating reference stars, and smooth catalogues, in accordance with extragalactic reference gadgets with non-measurable movement. This e-book addresses the recommendations and strategies of the respective building recommendations 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 by means of the Hipparcos Catalogue. whereas primary outlines of meridian circle observations are given, emphasis is installed a few element at the VLBI approach as utilized to astrometry, and to the observational options utilized in the Hipparcos venture, together with the tie of the initially non-anchored inflexible Hipparcos sphere into the ICRF.
