very different elliptical galaxy

    Beautiful elliptical with an elongated central bulge.

    If you think it has a bulge, it cannot be an elliptical.
    Elliptical means no feature whatsoever. Just a big ball or elongated ball of stars.
    For this one, I'd go for an edge on with no bulge (but hey, that is just me! )

    Definitely a disk galaxy, viewed (almost) edge-on, IMHO. Also #bulgeless, making it a #blessEos! 😃

    NGC 4341

    Looks like it have two cores.

    It's a lenticular galaxy. As close as it gets to elliptical while still being a disc.
