Torino Polarimetry of 25143 Itokawa

This data set contains the polarimetry of asteroid 25143 Itokawa published in Cellino et al. (2005). The observations were made from June 26 through July 3, 2004 with the Torino photopolarimeter at the 2.15 m telescope of the El Leoncito Observatory in Argentina. The degree of linear polarization was measured in five filters (Johnson-Cousins UBVRI).
