Abstract. The Klet' search programme for minor planets using 0,63m Maksutov camera of Klet' Observatory was begun in 1977 as a long-term project continuing up to the present day. The discovery frequency according to seasons in the year shows multiple differences between particular months. The comparison with the number of observing nights and obtained search plates; weather conditions and other influences will be discussed. The Klet minor planet discovery frequency also will be compared with the data base of all numbered minor planets.
