    Hi and welcome to the zoo @brucehawkster 😃

    First off there is no right or wrong answer, just give it your best shot to classify what you are seeing. If I was given this image to classify, I would go with a barred spiral galaxy. Some people might also classify it as having a ring, as the spiral arms have folded back on themselves to give that appearance, but I would personally leave that off.

    Hope this helps and happy hunting 😃
