    Overlap in GZ is only used to denote galaxy/galaxy overlaps.

    "Overlap in GZ is only used to denote galaxy/galaxy overlaps." other than this discussion where is this 'convention' written as a Zoo rule?

    @lostlens - perhaps you should create your own hashtag for non-galaxy line of sight coincidences?

    There is no need to do this. Overlap means a galaxy/galaxy overlap.

    And these stars are not overlapping btw, they only appear to be touching, let alone overlapping.
