High S/N Reticon spectra of Alpha2 CVn, Epsilon UMa, Sirius and Vega are
investigated to estimate the Cr-abundance and its possible depth distribution.
While three of the stars show practically normal (homogeneous) distribution of
the element, Alpha2 CVn was found to be anomalous: the abundance of chromium
decreases outwards of the atmosphere.
