Abstract: We present preliminary results of imaging and spectral analysis of the cluster A496 with the S3 chip on-board the Chandra satellite. We confirm the presence of a cooling flow and radial gradients in elemental abundances. The cluster's core has clear signs of substructures (sharp edges, bubbles), similar to those recently found in other cooling flow clusters. We discuss the implications of the structures seen in the central regions of A496.
