Ameobea,  please post this one on Possible Polar Rings too so Liz can take a look at it.  Thanks!  ;D

This was posted before in the Newbies thread by MCTMike - I think it also goes here.

I think this is a merger. It looks like several interesting things are going on here.

WOW  8) 8) 8)
I think that it is a galaxy in front of the other, my first thought was a galactic crash because of the less active place but looking with more attention to image I think that the vertical galaxy is not disturbed as it should be if it was flying trough the horizontal one therefore two galaxies not merging. But as I often say "errare humanum est". Any other opinions?

Hi JInx, Welcome to the zoo! I would definintely go for merger, although I agree with h.kohler, I'm not convinced it's the "upright" galaxy that's doing the merging - with many mergers, you don't always see both cores anyway.
Lovely find!! :) :) :) :) :) :)

Reference # is not for merger, of course - is the target the red semi-circular line from 1 to 7 o'clock or the smaller blue ring inside the red semi-circle?  Can anyone see anything else in the target area?   :-\

Just in case, someone please post this image on the overlaps so we make sure Bill (NGC3314) sees it.  He is interested on the dust lanes and we are not sure it's a simple merger.    Thanks! :D

:D :D I agree with Aida post it in the overlap thread IMHO I see merger and possible overlap, :D

90000715   Another ambiguous one...I see 2 cores, 1 spiral arm each.

They seem such a long way away and seem to be interacting - but its frustrating not to know redshifts...    :-\

90029692.  Looks more like a red - blue mirror image but could be an overlap I guess..

Some more mergers...  but its all so difficult to tell.  We need more tutorials...!
