Abstract: In the report possibilities of the telescope RST-220 (diameter of the mirror 22cm) for the solution of various observation tasks are shown. Since 2008 this tool has been used for regular high-precision astrometric observations of geostationary satellites within cooperation of observations according to the ISON program. In addition to astrometric observations photometric observations have been made as well. In 2009 the worldwide campaign on photometric observations of mutual occultations and eclipses of Galilean satellites of Jupiter was founded. Using RST-220 it was managed to obtain some light curves. The light curve of the unique double event - an occultation and an eclipse - is given for satellites Io and Europe.
