Motion in the R-Aquarii Jet 1991, 1992, 1993: 3-D Perspective

Images from the Hubble Space Telescope's Faint Object Camera from 1991, 1992, and 1993 demonstrate motion in the R Aquarii emission jet. Since images from this period were still affected by the primary mirror flaw, the images were restored to the original design resolution using the maximum entropy method.
