In this paper, we publish measurements of 1514 positions of the major satellites of Saturn made in 1995 and 1997 using CCD detectors attached to the 1-metre Jacobus Kapteyn Telescope on the island of La Palma. Analysis of the data as inter-satellite positions shows that the observations of Tethys, Dione, Rhea and Titan have root-mean-square residuals of 0″.08 in 1995 and 0″.10 in 1997.
