Wow! you should both post this in another one of my threads. Certainly took my breath away- http://www.galaxyzooforum.org/index.php?topic=1459.0

*********************************************************************************************************

How to get the image in the page (you need multiple windows open in your browser):

Use this name:

http://casjobs.sdss.org/ImgCutoutDR6/getjpeg.aspx?ra=111.111&dec=55.555&scale=0.39612&opt=&width=512&height=512

inside the image tags, like this: (img)http...(/img) only use brackets instead of parentheses.

Then go to Galaxy Analysis, and click on the number of any galaxy (e.g. 58991234567890), which will take you to something like:

http://cas.sdss.org/astro/en/tools/explore/obj.asp?id=587732482197094621

Change the number to your desired galaxy.  Now click on the picture.  That will take you to a new window,

http://cas.sdss.org/astro/en/tools/chart/chart.asp?ra=137.18918335&dec=37.49270994

Aha!!!  Now you have the ra and dec numbers.  In fact, you can change them on the left.  Get it centered how you want it, then use those numbers to replace the old ones inside the (img) tags.  Painful the first time, no big deal after.

Aha! You do it the hard way. If you are using firefox- right click picture, copy image location or something like that, hhit the button (insert picture) paste between the codes.

If you use internet explorer- right click> properties> Copy Adress(URL) [Note- when you reach .aspx? at the seemingly bottom, drag your mouse down as if you are copying more. More code will appear already highlighted!] > hit (insert picture) button> paste between codes.
If you want to inclue web adress, hit (insert hyperlink) button> paste between codes

Probably sounds complicated, but I was doing your way a while back, and trust me, this way is much, much easier.  8)
This way, you dont have to search for the ra and dec, the adress you struggle to find is already given to you!

If a box like this: appears instead of your picture, you didnt drag your mouse don like I instructed above.

Hope this helps!  ;D

Is this a galaxy with 2 colours or is it something else?

This is easily my weirdest picture to date. Someone in another thread said it looks like they caught a satellite in this pic. I just think the telescope got an overdose of modern/cubist art.  ::)

Alignment of stars ?  Or double-star ? 8)

Obj ID = 587734948053450912

Must be alignement of stars. Double stars - as I understand it - will normally not be descernible.

http://casjobs.sdss.org/ImgCutoutDR6/getjpeg.aspx?ra=111.111&dec=55.555&scale=0.39612&opt=&width=512&height=512

inside the image tags, like this: (img)http...(/img) only use brackets instead of parentheses.

http://cas.sdss.org/astro/en/tools/explore/obj.asp?id=587732482197094621

*********************

Here's my weird galaxy.  Approximately 1/4 of the outer edge is dark!  Hmmm, advanced civilizations using all the energy?  Anyone?  Eh, maybe it's just a funny cloud.
587742061052166366



And one more, the lopsided spiral
587732581519196281



Actually its easier than that.
When you get an interesting galaxy on your screen then click on the 'Galaxy Ref:' number.
Then you get your picture with a grid overlay. Click on that and you get a new picture, normally seen at a greater distance.
To the left you have the opportunity to zoom (+/-) and the you rightclick the picture and click 'Proporties' and copy the http:/-adress (normally 4 lines)
Insert this between the (img)(/img) (with brackets) and thats it.
