This paper concerns the numerical determination of doubly asymptotic orbits at the collinear equilibrium points of the general three-body problem. To compute a doubly asymptotic orbit we use a linear analysis to determine the relevant outgoing eigenvector and a combined iterative method based on the characteristic bisection and Newton's method to solve the resulting system of equations for the mass parameters of the problem. Many such orbits are presented.
