SDSS data seems completely wrong on this object when searching by RA, Dec and NED gives a "404". Shape of Galaxy provided by DR13 is very different and has a z of 0.004. Any thoughts anyone?

Orientation is different in the FERENGI project, so galaxy points in a different direction. I don't know why, probably just keeps us from feeling confident.
Galaxy is red in FERENGI it is artifically redshifted to make it look far away. see Dim New Red Objects Dec 10 2016 https://talk.galaxyzoo.org/#/boards/BGZ0000007/discussions/DGZ00027bx
404, did you make sure that you totally cleared out the numbers in the navigate ra and dec before pasted the new ra, dec in?
Here is my path to the galaxy in dr13. I can see the galaxy and a bright star beside it.
Redshift (z) 0.004
