In extending the range of artificial and natural objects observed in near-Earth space to faint magnitudes both telescope parameters and detection methods are of great importance. Possibilities and list of problems which can be solved by the use of the AZT-8 with a CCD camera are considered. It is expected that position accuracy for near-Earth space objects up to 20 magnitudes will be about 0.2–0.3" when the AZT-8 modernized is used for observation.
