HST image of galaxy M87 showing jet originating from the central core. Image restoration was performed using the Lucy-Richardson deconvolution method in the Space Telescope Science Institute's STSDAS package. Different clumpy regions within the jet can clearly be seen. The ring-like apprearence at the core of the galaxy is an artificat from the deconvolution.
