[101.04] Hubble Space Telescope Advanced Camera for Survey Observations of N132D in the Large Magellanic Cloud

We present new observations of the oxygen-rich supernova remnant N132D in the Large Magellanic Cloud using the Hubble Space Telescope's Advanced Camera for Surveys. By using wide filters around several key emission lines (such as [\ion{O}{3}] 5007 Å) we image structure that is doppler shifted out of standard narrow band filters. The high spatial resolution provided by ACS allows us to study the morphology of high velocity filaments within the remnant. We compare our observations with previous Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 images.
