Resumen

CCD photometry of asteroids 276 Adelheid, 1490 Limpopo, and 2221 Chilton obtained at the Universidad de Monterrey Observatory during August and September 2005 is reported. A synodic rotation period of 6.315±0.005 hours and an amplitude of 0.17±0.03 magnitudes is confirmed for Adelheid from five nights of observations. The resulting synodic rotation period and amplitude for Limpopo is 6.426±0.003 hours and 0.16±0.03 magnitudes from three nights of observations. Chilton was observed on four nights and exhibits a synodic rotation period of 7.445±0.015 hours and an amplitude of 0.20±0.05 magnitudes, though the period is uncertain due to the faintness of the asteroid in the images. Another possible solution for the rotation period of Chilton is 8.63±0.02 hours.
