I meet so many smooth Galaxies (AGZ000d3ye) lately. Bar in the middle but there is no way to mark it. How do I mark it?

If you see a bar, you should not classify the galaxy as smooth. Start with 'features or disk' - not an edge on - yes : has a bar - not a spiral - bulge (if you see one).
Hope this helps and happy hunting ! 😄
NGC 0375 ETG #spiral with smooth blended arms and a bar-like feature. Another south looks to be elliptical 1237680315521237039 also MTG. And an older ETG 1237680315521302757 east somewhat literally elliptical to suggest lenticular.
