Hi Michael.

About 14 years ago I started to compile such a list in the form of a spreadsheet but gave up as it was, at that time, difficult to find all the necessary info. Since then the Web has gone from strength to strength and it is definitely much easier to glean that information. If you like we could work together to update my original spreadsheet? Are you keen to give it a go? We would just work together under data protection rules to achieve this.

I had an ulterior reason for compiling the list – that is to run a project under ARPS to observe these objects and to discover their rotation rates. Fortunately we now know these values for some thousands of asteroids and so maybe a lot less work would be involved than originally envisaged.
