We found in our solar system, many rocky bodies, sometimes metal, smaller than planets and usually irregular in shape. They are called "asteroids". In this paper we present the initial results of asteroids observed at Oukaimeden in the Hight-Atlas montains mroccan, these detections have been identi-ed with camera sbig ST7XME plus an focal reductor and telescope C14 plus mount AP900GTO The results obtained, allows us to identifi-ed four asteroids already known, their trajectories on three nights of observation it was noted and the coordinates sent to the MPC, which has proceed the validation of these measurements before ascribing the J43 code and the Oukaimeden Observatory name.
