    appears to have a double nucleus. overlap? photo aberration?

    Zoom out, in Navigate, and you'll see that (many of) the other objects nearby (many of them stars) have similar 'double' appearances.

    There does seem to be a number of more-or-less symmetric pairs of red spots around the galaxy ... but there's a very bright star nearby (towards the top left), making the sky very noisy.
