Millimeter Wavelength Radio Map of IRC+10216

BIMA observations of the emission from HCN (left panel) and C4H (right panel) in IRC+10216 (Dayal and Bieging 1993), illustrating the utility of high-resolution molecular line images for studies of molecular abundance distributions in circumstellar envelopes. The synthesized beamsizes are shown in the lower right of each panel.
