Star or Galaxy

  • Rob_Rochefort by Rob_Rochefort

    this looks like a star but if it's a galaxy the center is extremely large and bright.

    Hi Rob Rochefort and welcome to the Zoo

    You are correct. This is most definitely a star from our galaxy. But the colors are not real. Lots of imaging and filter problems in this image.

    Just classify as star/artifact.

    Happy hunting ! 😄
