Context. The lastest catalogue of observations includes about 51 000 observations (over 3500 nights) of Saturn's satellites from 1874 to 1989. Since 1989, many observations have been published, often in different formats, based on the publication.
Aims. Our new catalogue of observations of the eight major satellites of Saturn includes the observations of the previous catalogues, newly published data and also old observations left out of the previous catalogue. The observations are tabulated in a consistent format.
Methods. We give, for each observation, the corrections applied for reduction such as refraction, aberration or phase effects. Furthermore, when it was possible, the instrument and catalogue are also indicated.
Results. The new catalogue presents more than 130 000 observations (over 6000 nights) of the eight major satellites of Saturn from 1874 to 2007.
Key words: catalogs / planets and satellites: individual: Saturn / astrometry
