two colors = mergin ?

  • Jubedi by Jubedi

    Hi! How should I handle smooth, round, two-colored galaxies?

    Are they smooth ones or two merging without debris?

    In this case there also two smaller yellow spots on the lower left... debris?

    Welcome Jubedi I would classify as smooth, and inbetween. It is probably a distant spiral, but I can't see any details, so impossible to classify as a spiral. The nuclear bulge is bright, and the outside, where the arms are, is dimmer. The two other spots may be debris, it is impossible to be sure.
