    The bright orange object is a foreground star from our galaxy (and I suppose that is what you are asking about ! 😉 )

    The central object is a foreground star, but there is no gravitational lensing in this image.

    Elisabet Sorry! You're right. It is an elliptical galaxy of stars which a lens.

    No, sorry, the central orange object is a foreground star from our galaxy (it is not a galaxy!).

    The galaxy in the image is probably a very fuzzy spiral galaxy with a big bulge.
