Abstract
Photometric observations for 173 Ino (1998, 1999, 2002), 376 Geometria (1996, 1997/98, 1999, 2000, 2004) and 451 Patientia (1998, 2002, 2003) carried out at six observatories are presented. Using all available lightcurves, the spin vectors, senses of rotation and shape models of these three asteroids were determined.


Key words: techniques: photometric -- minor planets, asteroids
