Why is this not clumpy?

  • Sherdnerd by Sherdnerd

    To me this looks clumpy, but that doesn't appear as an option for this galaxy. What am I missing?! Any tips are would be appreciated
    (P.S. Its probably pretty obvious, but I'm new to this and still getting to grips with the classifications.)

    First of all those are foregroundstars from our galaxy, not a galaxy, so there can't be no clumps. The weird colours and shapes they have are due to optical artifacts.
    About your other question: The option "clumpy" is available only for Hubble images, not SDSS like this one.
