Abstract

The plate collection of the Zvenigorod 40-cm Carl Zeiss astrograph, obtained in 1972-2003, contains direct photographs of star fields, comets, asteroids, Pluto, and Mars. The electronic library of images from photographic plates was created from scanning the astronomical negatives. We present information on programs scheduled at the telescope and the structure and maintenance of the plate stacks. We also list the plates with images of asteroids and comets. Access to all our plate lists is provided at the web sites of the Institute of Astronomy (INASAN) and WFPDB. It is possible to select plates by the date of observation, by the coordinates of the sky area, by the object type. Preview images can be inspected.
