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.

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