Previous studies of young stellar objects (YSOs) have uncovered a number of associated parsec-scale optical outflows, the majority of which are driven by low-mass, embedded Class I sources. Here we examine more evolved Classical T Tauri stars (CTTSs), i.e. Class II sources, to determine whether these are also capable of driving parsec-scale outflows. Five such sources are presented here - CW Tau, DG Tau, DO Tau, HV Tau C and RW Aur, all of which show optical evidence for outflows of the order…

The origin of bipolar outflow asymmetry in young stellar objects (YSOs) remains poorly understood. It may be due to an intrinsically asymmetric outflow launch mechanism, or it may be caused by the
