Abstract: This paper studies the central regions of a classic Seyfert galaxy, NGC 1068 via high-resolution images obtained with NICMOS on HST. As the closest Seyfert 2 galaxy it offers an excellent opportunity for resolving small-scale structure. In the NICMOS images the location of the nucleus is easily observed. Images in Paschen α and [Si vi] show the structure of the galaxy at two different excitation levels. The author would like to acknowledge the large efforts by Ranga-Ram Chary, Michael Corbin, and Harland Epps who are co-authors on the work in preparation. This work is supported in part by NASA grant NAG 5-3042. This article is based on observations with the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope, obtained at the Space Telescope Science Institute, which is operated by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy under NASA contract NAS5-26555.
