In this paper we study the asymptotic motion to the collinear equilibrium points of Chermnykh's problem. More specifically, we give three kinds of non-symmetric doubly-asymptotic solutions emanating from L1 and L3. We also show that these solutions are closely connected to the families of periodic orbits generated around these equilibria.
