The large jet in the HH-111 complex

This drawing shows contours of equal brightness (isophotes) of the newly discovered, large jet from a newborn star. With the exception of one background star, all stellar images have been removed by means of image processing. In order to show the bow-shocks on the opposite side of the main jet within the same picture, an empty section, 180 arcseconds long, has been "cut out''. The upper part of the picture may be compared with the B/W photograph which also accompanies the Press Release.
