The camera station of the Geodetic Institute of Delft University of Technology has participated in a number of internationally coordinated geodetic satellite observation programmes. In a previous publication contributions to several international observation programmes were discussed. The present publication concentrates on the methods and formulas applied for the reduction of observations made for the European Short Arc Observation Programme (SAOP). These photographic satellite observations have been made at two observing-sites i.e. Delft-Ypenburg and Kootwijk, in the period April 1971-April 1974.
Some results of observations and computations are given.
