Abstract. Long-term photographic search programme
for minor planets was
begun at the Klet Observatory at the end of seventies using 0.63-m Maksutov
telescope, but with insufficient respect to long-arc follow-up
More than two thousands of provisore designations were given
to new Klet discoveries.
Since 1993 targeted follow-up astrometry of Klet
candidates has been performed with 0.57-m reflector equipped with
CCD camera and reliable orbits for many previous Klet discoveries were
The photographic programme results in more than 330 numbered minor planets
credited to the Klet as one of the most prolific world discovery
sites, nearly 60 per cent of them were numbered in consequence of CCD
follow-up observations since 1994.
This brief summary describes results of this Klet photographic minor planet survey between 1977 and 1996. The majority of Klet photographic discoveries belong to the main belt asteroids, but two Amor type asteroids and one Trojan have been found.
