    I haven't classified many objects, so I'm not sure whether the fact that it's red with with green round the outside is unusual or not. Is it?

    It's an #artifact; something went wrong with the camera, the data processing, or both. A #poorqualityimage. You can't tell, just by this image, if it's a galaxy or a star! If you check out SkyServer, and then Navigate, you'll see several objects like this in the same field, as well as several galaxies. So this is almost certainly just a star in our own galaxy.
