In a recent paper (Vi stas in Astronomy 24 (1980) 17–37, ‘Paper I’ here-after), I presented a method of determining the orbital stability of asteroids in near-resonance with Jupiter, together with some results of applying the method to two sets of fictitious asteroids around the 2/1 (Hecuba) and 3/2 (Hilda) resonances. Here I shall report on the results on some real asteroids in the same two regions and some practical experience gained in applying the method.
