Summary form only given. This paper is a natural continuation of a series of papers about self-similar skeletal structures (SSSS) in various types of plasma up to space scales. The SSSS research was begun with the analysis of images of various types of plasma using the method of multilevel dynamic contrasting (MMDC) developed and described earlier. The analysis of images by this method is done by means of imposing various computer maps of contrast on the image of the plasma received by the various methods and in many spectral ranges. Results of the analysis of a modern database of images of space objects shows that the topology of the revealed space structures is identical to those which have been already found out and described earlier in a wide range of physical environments, phenomena, and scales. The typical SSSS consists of separate identical blocks which are linked together and thus form a network. Two types of such blocks are found: (i) coaxially tubular structures (CTS) with internal radial ties, and (ii) cartwheel-like structures (CWS), which are located either on an own axle or in the edge of the CTS block. The large-scale skeletal structures of the Universe have a whole series of remarkable properties which have been also described before. So, long filaments consist of straight ("rigid") and of nearly identical blocks of CTS which join with each other flexibly and similarly to joints in a skeleton. It is assumed that such joints may be realized due to the stringing of the individual CTS blocks on common flow of the magnetic field which penetrates whole filament, and that the CTS blocks are interacting as magnetic dipoles assembled of micro-dust skeletons which are immersed into the plasma. Here, the results of such analysis which has been done after receiving the data using MMDC of maps of the redshift surveys of galaxies and quasars are presented. This analysis revealed large-scale structures of the above-mentioned topologies. So, the CWS with diameter - 1.5middot10 27 cm is discovered at analysis of the redshift surveys of galaxies. Similar skeletal structures with diameter up to 1.5middot10 28 cm are found also at the processing of the redshift maps of quasars
