 Science images 

12.9 mu image of Jupiter obtained on October 7, 2000.

This image corresponds to the subtraction of an image on-source by one off-source. Each chopping position corresponds to 12*20 frames each of 8ms.

The black spots left and below the giant red spot correspond to some dust on the entrance window of the detector.

20mu image of Saturn obtained on October 10, 2000.

The image is the average of 19 on-off chopping frames subtracted from one another. It corresponds to 19*2.1 sec on source. The image has been smoothed by a factor 2.

The field of view in the images is ~72*96 arcsec and ~48*64 arcsec for Jupiter and Saturn respectively.

      12.9mu mosaic, of the Ney-Allen nebula in the Orion trapezium, obtained on October 11, 2000.

The white horizontal bar to the right corresponds to 10".
