galaxy or artifact?
I was looking at this one in different wavelengths, and can kind of se spiral arms (2 of them, lose). Is this a galaxy or an artifact, what kind of artifact?

Hi @Apila 😃
It is a galaxy 😃
If I had to classify it without looking at the different wavelengths (or filters) - I would of said 'smooth - inbetween' galaxy.
Looking at the raw data, I would say edge-on.
The colours are artifacts, they are not real - usually caused by over saturation.
Happy hunting! Let us know if you have more questions 😃
