Artifact star of a smooth and rounded galaxy?
Being a newbie and I'm little confused over how to tell whether an image like this is a star or an artifact? Thanks for any help!

Hi AndromedaKarmel and welcome to the Zoo
This is actually a star but the colors are artificial. Something went wrong with the imaging/filters.
So here it is definitely star/artifact ! 😄
Happy hunting !
