In this paper we present an analysis of the differences between the Hipparcos and FK5 catalogues. We study parametric and nonparametric methods with two main objectives: first, to determine whether or not there is a pure rotation between the two catalogues, and to decide which model best represents the residuals; second, to give a practical formulation to reduce positions between the two systems at any point on the celestial sphere.
Key words: astrometry / catalogs / reference systems
