On the basis of our results of CCD-observations made with the axial meridian circle of the Nikolaev Observatory from 2008 to 2009, we compiled a catalogue of astrometric positions and proper motions for 140321 stars located in ecliptical zone fields and around high-proper- motion stars. The rms error for a star position is 20—65 mas in right ascension and 30—70 mas in declination. The UCAC2 catalogue was used as reference one for astrometric reductions. To derive star proper motions and estimate systematic errors of the catalogue compiled, the cross-identification of the obtained data with the modern astrometric catalogues Tycho2, 2MASS, CMC14, LSPM, PPMX, USNO-A2.0, and XPM-1.0 was performed. In addition to star positions and proper motions, our catalogue contains photometric values B, V, r', J, H, K taken from other catalogues.
