SDSS J124609.11+285730.6 (DR7 ObjId 587741531719663708), z=0.024

I stumbled across this, in the field of something else, entirely different, that I was looking for.

Apparently,  it hasn't been posted before, certainly not in this thread!  :o

Sorry for bringing up this old topic, but I found this to be quite a nice example, although it looks more like an edge-on S0 than an actual elliptical to me.

I think the main, blue fuzzy blob, is a local dwarf (not so dwarfish in size though!), with a redshift of ~0.027.

In the background there are at least two, possibly as many as four, distant galaxies.



DR7 ObjId 587742191518744790 is the only one with a spectrum (as far as I can tell), and its (main, there is at least one other system in here) redshift is 0.146. It's got strong emission lines, which makes its color unusual ... the H-alpha is shifted into the i-band, and perhaps the foreground galaxy's dust is making it look somewhat pink too ...

My collection of blue ellipticals:


KUG 0158+231 Not quite one...



2MASXi J2258415+233614



SDSS J014503.36-091202.9



No object found.



2MASX J00183334-0658535



2MASX J21330721+0909303
I like to find asteroids and galaxy mergers- but all galaxies are still fine to me.

Not very blue, and at that resolution I think an argument could be made that it's a spiral--in particularly if it's "starforming"!. ::)
