Results are presented for 350- and 400-MeV O16 inelastic scattering from Pb208 and Zr90. The results show excitation of the giant quadrupole, monopole, and dipole resonances. The cross section and peak to continuum ratio are very large for the giant quadrupole resonance. Measured angular distributions agree with distorted-wave Born approximation calculations which use standard collective model form factors. Structure observed in the O16 spectra corresponding to high excitation energies in Pb208 is shown to arise from projectile pickup reactions.
