Abstract: We have carried out 60 micron imaging observations of a sample of nearby, far-infrared bright galaxies, using the Yerkes infrared camera aboard the KAO. A total of eleven galaxies have been observed, most of which are actively star-forming, barred spirals. In this contribution we present our first set of observations on four galaxies: NGC 4102, NGC 4536, NGC 5962, and NGC 6181.
