How to categorize
Am I supposed to classify this as a cigar shaped object right in the middle or a collection of objects. I am not even sure if these are galaxies or closer stars and light passing through dust.

First of all, always classify the objct in te center of the image. In this case, the small cigar shaped or edge on galaxy. The other objects are also galaxies; Nice cluster.
Happy huntng !
