    Two rings. Looks a bit like a cell about to divide.

    2 rings at different angles to each other, what large forces managed that?

    Are these spiral arms or ring effect? Are there out of focus stars at centre or something else? Thanks.

    This is a two armed barred spiral where the very faint spiral arms fold back to form a ring. There is also a clearer inner ring.

    The central bright yellow dot is the center of the galaxy. The one at 1 o'clock is a foreground star fro our galaxy.
