We present results of the analysis of 18 hours of observation of the Crab Nebula with the Whipple Observatory high resolution gamma-ray imaging telescope during the 1993-94 season. After selection of candidate gamma rays using the Supercuts algorithm, the data have been searched for evidence of pulsar emission at the 33 ms period of the Crab Pulsar. While there is a highly significant de excess from the direction of the Crab Nebula, there is no statistically significant correlation between this emission and the pulsar period. Analysis of data obtained for Geminga during the 1993-94 season is in progress and will also be presented at the conference.
