A catalogue of star positions and V magnitudes for stars down to 17m in the declination zone from 2 to +5.5° was compiled. It contains 2.05*106 stars and is based on the observations obtained from 2010 to 2015 at the meridian circle MAC of the Main Astronomical Observatory of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and Astronomical Observatory of Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. The precision of positions and photometry is 0.06—0.08" and 0.04—0.08m, respectively, for stars of 11—14 magnitude.
