We suggest classification for dynamical problems of a space station motion near a precessing small planet. This classification is based on three signs. These signs are the model of the asteroid gravitational potential, the method of holding the space station near the small planet, the type of dynamical problem. Within the offered classification we review the results received earlier. In particular, we construct sets of the space station equilibria or stationary orbits if the asteroid gravitational potential is composed by potentials of two real or conjugate complex point masses on real or imaginary distance and if the station coast along the leier or it moves freely. (In our case the leier is a tether with ends fixed in the asteroid poles). Moreover, we establish some facts of stability for the found orbits and equilibria and note some integrable cases of the motion equations along the leier
