The astrometric CCD observations of stars with large proper motion were carried out at Nikolaev Observatory telescopes during 2008—2014 years. The catalog of positions and proper motions of the 1596 fast stars with proper motions exceeding 150 mas/year was obtained. The catalog covers the declination zone from 0 to 65°. Depending on the observational star history standard errors of the received proper motions were in the range from 1 to 10 mas/year by both coordinates. 8 different star catalogs and surveys were used to calculate the new proper motion data. The results of the comparison of the obtained proper motions with data from other astronomical catalogs and results of statistical test for search possible candidates with invisible components are also presented.
