Gegenschein observations from Pioneer 10 were found to have brightness structures with an amplitude of about 10% and a period of several to ten degrees in elongation. A search is made for such structures in high angular resolution ground-based observations from Mt. Haleakala, Hawaii. A new empirical method is used to correct for atmosphere-originated radiation. Background starlight is subtracted using Pioneer 10 observations from beyond the asteroid belt. Preliminary analysis of the ground data also indicates the presence of small amplitude structures in the brightness distribution.
