 A program of optical observations was started to check the list of 79 compact extragalactic radio sources from the ICRF catalog with the Zeiss-600 telescope (60/750) of the Andrushevska Astronomical Observatory (φ=50º00′02.0 ″, λ=28˚59′50.3 ″, h =240 m.),. The list is recommended for high-precision astrometric space observations. It can be used to improve communication between the optical (HCRF) and radio (ICRF) coordinate systems. The telescope is equipped with a CCD camera, the image files from which are transmitted to the Intel-Pentium 3-933 computer in real time. The standard software, supplied by the manufacturer of the CCD receiver, allows real-time monitoring of the quality of received frames of images of star fields.
