    a nice tight barred spiral with two major arms and hints of three more minor arms. Appears disturbed.

    Here's a zoomed-in view, from DR8 (Galaxy Zoo has done its own image processing, so images can sometimes look quite different from the SDSS ones):

    enter image description here

    I can see the bar, and two major arms from its ends; I can also see hints of other arms, or arcs, though I'm not sure if there are three. Appears disturbed? Doesn't look that way to me; what suggest it is, to you, if I may ask?

    I can sort of see that the top (original)/left (DR8) edge of the disk looks chopped off. Not a major disturbance, though.
