    I really have difficoulties in classifying this image. Seem two galaxies, but the red colour is strange. Do not know. Any idea?

    Hi Smaramiao and welcome to the Zoo

    These objects are stars from our galaxy, but the colors are not real. Lots of imaging and filter problems. Classify as star/#artifct.

    Happy hunting ! 😄

    These are stars in our galaxy. The imaging is all wrong though, with bad filters, over-exposures, artifacts etc. Classify as star/artifact.
    Below is an image of the stars, but zoomed out. The black bit on the side is the end of the photographic field.
