The cycle of measurements of antenna aiming errors of the radio telescope RT-70 was conducted in 2004 and the method for error determination with the use of natural radio sources was developed for that purpose. The results of measurements of antenna aiming errors and their dependence on elevation coordinates are given. The program complex for automatic taking into account aiming errors at the stage of preparation of target designation is developed.
