    There is strange shape in the bottom-left, maybe some dust.

    Don't really understand what is it. Is that a side of the galaxy ?

    Tricky one here - my eye was drawn to the irregular blob, but the object at the centre is probably just a nearby star - right?

    Strongly suspect gravitational lens, created by nearby objects, is distorting (warping) shape of this target.
