Remarks

* - orbital type derived from osculating orbital elements

$ - diameter range derived from H and assumed albedo for C and S type - 0.04 and 0.20 respectively

# - absolute magnitude H derived from astrometric observation via orbit determination - G value assumed to be 0.15

B - in rotation quality code means Binary asteroid

R - as rotation quality code means Radar observations
