We present a deep (90 ksec) Chandra image of Abell 370, a strongly lensing galaxy cluster at redshift z=0.37. The observed X-ray surface brightness distribution and temperature of the cluster core (r < 30 arcsec) are compared to predictions of alternative mass models derived from the optical lensing data. Limits on the X-ray luminosity of the strongly-lensed background galaxies are presented. This work was supported by NASA through contract NAS-8-37716.
