[138.09] Carbon Distribution in PNe

C. J. Garner, A. D. Storrs (Towson Univ.)

We present images showing the carbon distribution in PNe IRAS 18059-3211 (known as ``Gomez's Hamburger"). These images were originally taken with the WFPC-2 camera on the HST on 22 February 2002. Three different filters (F450W, F555W, and F675W) were used to record the images. One of the filters (F675W) is not sensitive to carbon in this object, so this filter is subtracted from the two other filters to create an image showing the spatial distribution of carbon.

The Hubble Space Telescope is operated by NASA and ESA. We wish to acknowledge the support of NASA Contract NAS5-26555.
