Abstract:A method for determining precisely the barycentric position of Uranus by CCD systems is presented in this present article. It is required according to the method that the CCD observations obtained both with a long-focus telescope which is used to observe the major satellites of Uranus and with a meridian circle which works in a CCD drift scanning manner when it is used to observe some faint stars. The key part of the method is tested by the observations obtained with the 1-meter telescope at the Yunnan Observatory.
