Images with 0.2 resolution were obtained in two filters, a broadband continuum filter (F160W, roughly equivalent to the H band) and a narrowband filter centered on the Pa{alpha} line (F187N or F190N, depending on the galaxy redshift) with the 51'' W 51'' field of view of the NICMOS camera 3. A first-order continuum subtraction is performed, and the resulting line maps and integrated Pa{alpha} line fluxes are presented. A statistical analysis indicates that the average Pa{alpha} surface brightness in the central regions is highest in early-type (Sa-Sb) spirals.
