Abstract: Positional observations of Jupiter's Galilean satellites at Ordubad during 1984-1986 are reported. The correction for Jupiter's solar phase in the coordinate difference 'satellite minus Jupiter' is studied. The best correction is implemented on the basis of the geometric law with the coefficient K sub x = K sub y = 3. The internal error of a single observation of each of the four satellites is obtained from a comparison of the coordinate differences with the G-5 theory.
