We present Chandra high resolution imaging of the circumnuclear regions of two nearby active galaxies, namely the starburst/AGN composite Seyfert 1.8 NGC 1365 and the archetypal Seyfert 1 NGC 4151. In NGC 1365, the X‐ray morphology shows a biconical soft X‐ray‐emission region extending ∼5 kpc in projection from the nucleus, coincident with the optical high‐excitation outflows. Chandra HRC imaging of the NGC 4151 nucleus resolves X‐ray emission from the 4 arcsec radio jet and the narrow line region (NLR) clouds. Our results demonstrate the unique power of spatially resolved spectroscopy with Chandra, and support previous claims that frequent jet‐ISM interaction may explain why jets in Seyfert galaxies appear small, slow, and thermally dominated.
