Is there really something in the core of this galaxy?

    Is this an artifact on the image or something visible in the core structure?

    Hello Paul and welcome 😃

    A bit of both 😃 There does appear to be some slight over saturation of the core, that is causing the slightly darker area at the center. That brightness could be due to an AGN, but we would need to look at spectra to determine that.
