Abstract

We report the results of the 2016 Mexican Asteroid Photometry Campaign. This year observers from seven different research institutions carried out 34 nights of observations at three Mexican observatories. An uncertain, but long, period of 115.108 ± 0.014 h was estimated for 703 Noëmi from sparse data. A nearly complete lightcurve was obtained for 1305 Pongola (P = 8.0585 ± 0.0003 h). Asteroid 2535 Hämeenlinna turned out to be a binary system where the primary exhibits a rotation period of 3.2311 ± 0.0001 h and the secondary shows an orbital period of 21.20 ± 0.004 h. Asteroid 4775 Hansen (P = 3.1186 ± 0.0001 h) was well observed and showed variations of its lightcurve between two sets of observations separated by about six weeks.
