This is my first post here, so I hope I get this right.

My most unusual galaxy so far.  I'm guessing a couple of edge on spirals merging.

That looks more like an artifact from puzzling two images together than an edge on spiral to me. Probably glares from the star below.

[Reposted from another thread]

The first image was just some light orange fuzz, nothing to see whatsoever. Then I opened it in the Object Explorer - much better:

I'll doublecheck those nonsensical images more often in the future...
