Abstract: Article reports about prospects to observe comets and asteroids using Russian-Cuban Observatory (RCO). In 2021, RCO wide-field 20cm robotic telescope was put into operation. The telescope has 20 cm aperture, 3.5x3.5 degree field of view and FLI PL16803 4K CCD camera with a set of UBVRI photometric filters. Telescope itself will be used as a multi-task networking observational tool. Using this Cuban telescope with telescopes located in Russia makes it possible to conduct quasi-day-and-night monitoring of comets and asteroids on an arc of more than 200 degrees.
