    Is this a star with a blurry corona or a galaxy? Also the central ball has different colours does this mean anything?

    That's definately a galaxy. An elliptical to be exact. The darker spot on the. iLife and the slight discolouration are all artifacts, hence not real. Note the two spheres down right, those are stars.

    Try viewing with the NED viewer to get a better idea how the camera reacts to the light for many stars and galaxies in a field. The bright ball is the "bulge" and the spiral might be obscured by dust? Look at other redshift z = .01 galaxies to compare.
