RAGA, A. C.; REIPURTH, B.  e  NORIEGA-CRESPO, A.. The HH34 jet/counterjet system at 1.5 and 4.5µm. Rev. mex. astron. astrofis [online]. 2019, vol.55, n.1, pp.117-123. ISSN 0185-1101.

We present a (previously unpublished) 1.5 µm archival HST image of the HH 34 Herbig-Haro jet, in which the northern counterjet is seen at an unprecedented angular resolution of ≈ 0.1′′ (this counterjet had only been imaged previously at lower resolution with Spitzer). The jet/counterjet structure observed in this image shows evidence of low-amplitude, point-symmetric deviations from the outflow axis, indicating the presence of a precession in the ejection direction. We use the ratios between the 1.5 and 4.5 µm intensities of the emitting knots (from the HST image and from a previously published 4.5 µm Spitzer image) to obtain an estimate of the spatial dependence of the optical extinction to the HH 34 jet/counterjet system. We find evidence for extinction from a central, dense core surrounding the outflow source and from a more extended region in the foreground of the HH 34 counterjet.
