    does look like images of quasars, with the two clouds protruding from the centre or could be #merger

    Two disturbed galaxies. I'd go for #merger.

    Hmmm - Having just read the paper myself - looks like this is not an AGN but a NELG (narrow emission-line galaxy)

    Does anyone have the original source classifying this as an AGN?

    Could NELG contain an AGN but its black hole would be less massive than in galaxies with broad emission lines?

    My bad - I should of said 'quasar' not AGN in my previous posts - I was responding to the previous comments.

    Thanks; I had a go at the paper but it's way over my head!

    I would be lying if I said I understood all of it either 😄
