Anyone know what the blue features are cause by ? Seems to be som kind of waveform passing through the systems
MRK 0463 is a seyfert 1 galaxy. you can read about them here
perhaps Budgieye can post the different colour galaxy images,from the forum I think.
I would like to save that one too.

There are two pink spots in the middle. So there are two active nuclei, with their black holes actively feeding.

There is a spectrum on NED and z=0.05.
Hot hydrogen at 6896 nm so is an active nucleus. NED say quasar and
Hot oxygen peaks at 5207 and 5258 nm
At z=0.05 hot hydrogen is pink, and hot oxygen is purple. Examples are here
So the bright purple blobs must be hot oxygen, so star-forming and supernova regions. They are a starburst region, and we call them "purple peas".
