We present results from a series of imaging spectroscopy observations of the Galactic center in the ~2µm region. The scans were made with the CFHT imaging FTS in June 1995 and, compared to the recent 3D results of Krabbe et. al. (1995), have improved field of view, spatial, and spectral resolution. Here we only show results of our Br scan.

Appears in the proceedings of the CTIO/ESO joint workshop on "The Galactic Center" (La Serena, 1996).
