Abstract
A center-shift method is presented for astrometric calibration, which is effective for space debris astrometry in a small field of view. Its details are given, the accuracy is experimented and the result is presented. The average accuracy of astrometric calibration using center-shift method is about 0.57 arcsec. The center-shift method is applicable to images observed by equatorial mount telescopes.
