    I have trouble with these. Hard to tell bar in fuzzy galaxy from edgeon in large halo.

    Classification will probably 50% each way, which is information in itself.

    This one I think bar and no spiral seen, but probably is a spiral. But that is me.

    Looked up GZ classification for SDSS image which has less resolution, and bar is less clear. Elliptical 67.9% Edgeon 6.2%

    I wonder if it is a galaxy within a galaxy, of interest to MaNGA researchers. I'll ask . Might be a software lasso artifact

    I think it's likely just a lenticular like galaxy with a bar. We do see them.

    Specific to MaNGA - most of the targets are set already. There's a process to submit sets of interesting targets for spare bundles....
