    First up - I have had to edit the title of this thread as profanity is not allowed on this site - we are family friendly.

    Secondly - the galaxy at the center looks like an S0 Lenticular galaxy, the other 2 round objects are foreground stars from our own galaxy.

For example NGC5866 (M102) could be a controversial example of a lenticular ... ^^
