    It seems to have spiral-like features, but very vague. How should these objects be classified?

    Hi GDik and welcome to the Zoo,

    Correct, this is a fuzzy spiral seen almost edge on. Just answer the questions as well as you can.

    So here I'd classify it as : features or disk - not an edge on - no bar (?) - spiral - tight - guess the n° of arms (2?) - obvious bulge - not merging - nothing special. But remember this is just my classification. Other people might see a bar or a different n° of spiral arms. Just give it your best !

    Happy hunting ! 😄
