Abstract: The author's previous results on the convergence of the Poincaré-von Zeipel procedure in celestial mechanics are applied to the problem of the motion of a satellite around the oblate earth. The investigation concerns a potential that can vary both longitudinally and latitudinally, and also includes behavior near the critical angle. The existence of conditionally periodic orbits in all these cases is established.
