    is there no galaxy featured in this image? is that's the case, are the bright spots just stars?

    Correct, the bright spots are all foreground stars from our galaxy. And yes, sometimes the software mistakes a star for a galaxy and that is why this image is included. Classify as star:artifact.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
