Not a ring but?

    Its not a ring but differently two different layers.

    Hi MichaelCassidy, it could be a lenticular (I´d go for it) or a spiral galaxy. It looks like that because the external part of the disk is thinner and less brighter than the central region and hence the "ring" appearance.

    Hi MichaelCassidy

    I'm with Astro_Denny on this one : probably a lenticular !

    Happy hunting ! 😄
