Is this a mergere?

    Not entirely sure if this is a merger

    Hi mabruzzo and welcome to the Zoo

    All the objects in this image are stars from our galaxy, but the colors are not real. Lots of imaging and filter problems. And definitely no merger here ! 😄

    Happy hunting !

    These are stars in our galaxy that are the wrong colour because of photographic artifacts, filtering problems- poor imaging. Classify as star/artifact. So no merger. The bigger picture is below and shows other stars that are similar.
