    I'm not sure what you mean by 'ring around the galaxy'. The central object (which you are supposed to classify) is a beautiful edge on spiral or disk with an amazing dustlane

    The dark line is dust, but this image does show a bright ellipse around the nucleus giving a 'diamond ring' appearance, not visible in DR8, beautiful.
