    Not sure how you, an experienced classifier, can classify something as an elliptical with a ring!

    A ring is a feature. So, if you start out with smooth, you cannot end with a ring.

    There's a very faint ellipsoid ring surrounding the object: https://i.imgur.com/fEl52N4.png

    It definitely doesn't look very connected to the central galaxy, so I'd say the main object looks pretty much like an elliptical.

    Groan ! 😉

    The 'ring' could be fuzzy spiral arms and the central object looks more like a bar with a bulge. But, hey, that is just me !

    Here's an idea: https://i.imgur.com/5NdWkMR.png what if it's some kind of tidal tail with that fuzzy object being the remnant core?
