Histograms using the partial and full light curves reported in this work and the literature. The CCs tend to have more amplitude than the rest of the TNOs. The blue discontinuous line is a Maxwellian fit using only the CC full light curves, suggesting a mean rotational period of 2.53 cycles/day (9.48 hr), whereas the red discontinuous line is for the other TNOs with a mean period of 8.45 hr.
