We study the orbit of a particle in the plane of symmetry of two equal mass primaries in rectilinear keplerian motion. Using the surfaces of section we look for periodic orbits, examine their stability and search for quasi-periodic orbits and regions of escape. For large values of the angular momentumC, we verify the validity of the approximation of two fixed centers. However, we also find irregular families of orbits and resonance zones. For small values ofC, the approximation is no longer valid, but we find invariant curves whose interpretation might be interesting.
