3C 200 is the classic example of a strong-flavour jet associated with a radio galaxy. This structure is much more usual in quasars, e.g. 3C 215. The host galaxy is elongated in the direction of the jet, perhaps partly due to optical/IR emission from the jet, although this is far from clear (de Koff et al. 1996, de Vries et al. 2000).

The striping parallel to the jet in our image is an artifact.

There is more faint emission than is visible in this image, seen better in the C20 image. Yet more shows up in the very low resolution map by Garrington et al. (1991).
