[58.11] IMAPS observations of NI in the local ISM

We present high resolution absorption spectra of the interstellar NI triplet at 1134 Angstroms for 3 nearby stars in the local interstellar medium ( Alpha Pav, Alpha Leo and Alpha Gru). These spectra were taken with the IMAPS instrument on the Astro-Spas II mission in December 1996, and the absorption profiles are compared with high resolution interstellar CaII K-line data to investigate the complex velocity structure of neutral gas within 60pc of the Sun
