Abstract: 3C305 is a nearby radio galaxy which shows strong warping of the stellar disk and a dust lane running almost parallel to the jet axis. We present and discuss HST and radio studies of the dust and gas which strongly constrain the geometry of this system, and explore the line ionization mechanism (photoionization/ jet-induced shocks) using emission line diagnostic ratios.
