Abstract
The observations by the photoelectric astrolabe at Yunnan Observatory relative to the Hipparcos Catalogue and the optical positions of 55 radio stars were obtained from observations between 1991 and 2000. They all resulted from processing the photon counts obtained by means of the astrolabe after the automation of the instrument. There are 46 stars in common with the Hipparcos Catalogue.
