    Although SDSS calls them both galaxies, they still look like foreground stars to me.

    What's the angular separation of the two red objects? And the velocity dispersion of the elliptical galaxy? Might not be enough mass...

    Boss spectr ( 2013-10-05) z_spec 0.124 vel_disp=182.2

    red obj separation ~7.33 arcsec: seems too large for the elliptical mass, != color

    amazingly like a lensed quasar, but we mods think it is stars in the foreground.
