D. Pray, Sugarloaf Mountain Observatory, South Deerfield, MA, U.S.A.;
J. Oey, Blue Mountains Observatory, Leura, NSW, Australia; P. Pravec, H.
Kucakova, and K. Hornoch, Ondrejov Observatory; V. Benishek, Belgrade
Astronomical Observatory; and A. Marchini, R. Papini, and F. Salvaggio,
Dipartimento di Scienze Fisiche, Della Terra e Dell'Ambiente, University of
Siena, report that photometric observations obtained with a 0.50-m telescope
at the Sugarloaf Mountain Observatory, a 0.35-m telescope at the Blue
Mountains Observatory, a 0.65-m telescope at the Ondrejov Observatory,
a 0.35-m telescope at the Sopot Observatory in Serbia, and a 0.30-m
telescope at the Astronomical Observatory of the University of Siena during
July 16-Sept. 25 reveal that minor planet (23621), whose orbit crosses that
of Mars, is a binary system with an orbital period of 20.60 ± 0.03 hr.
The primary shows a period of 2.6649 ± 0.0005 hr and has a lightcurve
amplitude of 0.07 mag at solar phases 1-4 degrees, suggesting a nearly
spheroidal shape. Mutual eclipse/occultation events that are 0.04- to
0.12-magnitude deep indicate a lower limit on the secondary-to-primary
mean-diameter ratio of 0.27.

2859 Paganini

PSABA target.
the last night was linked using same comparison stars since 2859 was in a stationaly position as viewed from earth.
it confirm the low amplitude nature and longish period of 32.4h

This asteroid show a long period bimodal light curve.
will continue to observe.
Data obtained from BMO 14Edge
5859 Ostozhenka

PSABA target
very low amplitude target .
shown the period spectrum for 6.89h
4760 Jia-Xiang

PSABA target.
initially target appear to have synch binary characteristic however after more data was collected, it appear to be a large amplitude asteroid.
telescope used..

JBL02 and DRO
4760 Jia-Xiang

Unusual light curve. possible synch binary but unconfirmed.

May target was taken with JBL02 and 24"

(14950) 1996 BE2

Data collected for the month of June. Amplitude is larger due to the usual Phase-Amplitude relation ship.

June data was taken with 14Edge

31170 1997 WO58

PSABA target
This one turned out to be a tough target. It was not such long period as I
thought it might have been originally and the poor weather condition here meant I
couldn't get long sessions .
The Jan and Feb data pointed to a shorter 13.7h period and
0.3mag amplitude. However I have to adjust 12/09 and 01/20 by as much a
0.5mag. which I concluded to be stray . Once adjusted, the curve fit well into the 13.7h light curve
