#AGN? or just overexposed centre (but then that's because it's so bright)
The bright blue irregular galaxy at the centre - with the dark blue blotch, it looks like there star formation all over
There is a small galaxy nearby when you get to navigate
fascinating - centre so bright it shines through thick edge-on disc! How can I get on another database to check for agn/black hole?
interaction with smaller neighbour but not sure about merger - starburst blotch in neighbour but no distortion, unlike main object
#AGN? line on spectrum stretched as if there was a black hole but can see any mentioned on NED or SIMBAD
cosmic onion rings, look seriously deep-fried to me 😃
What is that pale thing then? Looked like another more distant galaxy peeking out from behind the main bright one
quite a find
Thanks a lot
Another seriously ambiguous one (at least to my eyes)
Struggling with this one - too blue for elliptical but no arms for a spiral; can someone help?
What would a quasar look like seen through an envelope of an elliptical? I'm thinking about this red dot at 7-8 o'clock
Disturbed elliptical or dying spiral?
disturbance on the left -merger, or fly-by?
Tiny bit of lensing in blue-ish at 3 o'clock?
Any way to cross-check with different database for possible AGN?
If it's this blue at z=0.595, that's got to be the mother of all star formations in there
No entry on NED or SIMBAD for this
Centre seems quite bright for z=0.043 - AGN possible?
Thanks; I had a go at the paper but it's way over my head!
Cheers 😃 happy to be here 😃
Could NELG contain an AGN but its black hole would be less massive than in galaxies with broad emission lines?
Have marked as elliptical but it's strangely blue
After a year in digital wilderness I'm glad to be able to do basic classifications:-)
What a shame I'm stuck with a tablet here... difficult to draw those lines:-(
Need a new hashtag #megabar 😃
#overlap? Not much disturbance for a merger;
mismatch? Pic of galaxy but spectrum of star?
are these three interacting?
disturbed but by what?
#merger? some disturbance
looks odd with different parts aligned along different axes
#merger -looks great
red smudges towards top right - artifacts or is the galaxy ejecting something from the nucleus?
faint streak at 7 o'clock doesn't match direction of rotation - cld be ejected from nucleus?
doesn't show up on NED
#AGN? no spectrum available but nucleus v. compact&bright + disturbance in rest of galaxy
another late-stage #merger?
late stages of #merger?
faint, fuzzy & unknown to NED - star behind dust cloud?
RadioS i.e. #AGN?
this is harder than I thought:-) but point taken:-)
so the yellow and the blue are in fact one galaxy; was wondering about that:-)
#AGN; QSO broadline (Skyserver)
#overlap? elliptical over blue (starforming?) in background
#merger? or some interaction - disturbance in the foreground galaxy
sorry, meant 2013:-/
and OIII? read about that as indicator, although that for E 😃 so more important there for lack of H peak? (Park et al. 2003)
a spiral and a half?
what could be doing the bending?
what's going on inside there?
odd shape - obstruction by dust cloud?
patterns around nucleus - optical effect or morphology?
#AGN? very bright and compact nucleus
#stars; weird and wonderful; line of sight or gravitational connection?
busy neighbourhood; cluster / group? or unrelated?
just how long are these arms...?
#AGN? no spectrum, z or record on SIMBAD
late stages of merger? not much in the way of spiral arms left
don't know how to classify this:-/
what's the streak at 5-6 o'clock? another foreground object?
#merger? or overlap?
#AGN? looks like late stages of merger with some irregularites + bright&compact centre;
I thinks it's SB but this star gets in the way:-)
results of #merger? starburst and disturbance?
impossible to say! two SBa galaxies? overlap? not much sign of disturbance or starburst...
fly-by? some interaction with the neighbour and lots (merger?) of disturbance in the neighbouring spiral;
#AGN? very bright and compact centre
Skyserver centres on bright dot at 4 o'clock - foreground star?
#AGN? dust settling after #merger? very compact core; no z but looks redshifted a lot
cluster; not sure what interaction
#AGN? no z available but looks redshifted a lot; nucleus still very well defined;
is that noise at 6 o'clock or something coming out of the centre?
this a satellite trail #artifact
at z=0.0317 this looks like starburst; post-merger?
#merger; Skyserver centres on remnants of irregular galaxy being devoured? no NED or Simbad record:-(
#AGN? very well defined nucleus at what looks like a large distance?
#AGN? very compact centre
#merger late stages?; starburst: at z=.025 these young stars still look very bright; &lots of disturbance;
looks like #overlap to me
between those stars, is there a galaxy?
#AGN? at z=.101 the nucleus looks still quite bright, esp compared to the rest
#merger in late stages?
is that an inner ring?
some interaction? fly-by?
NGC 0670; stunning;
looks more like overlap of ellipticals; not much info on system but middle one looks the closest (outer edge seems to obscure neighbours...
I wonder if the one at 12 o'clock might be Seyfert - not much info on that either!
this looks like stars in our galaxy to me
#overlap? doesn't look like interaction; no redshift available for either;
not sure what that cone pointing downwards is;
#merger? quite bright for z=0.1225
NGC 1667; Seyfert 2; but Skyserver centres on supernova SN1986N
they are foreground stars in our galaxy
#AGN? lots of disturbance (post-#merger?) and quite bright centre
fair amount of disturbance though so at least some interaction likely
something went wrong with imaging
this is satellite trail;
disturbance by IrS nearby?
cld be overlap with a more distant galaxy? or QSO shining through the foreground target?
not sure about merger but some interaction; can't find z for either;
yes but skyserver centres on a feature in 1 of the arms, not bright core of spiral; difficult to make out; can someone check why?
#overlap; no z for either but target looks redder&no signs of interaction
#merger? no spectrum but looks like starburst&serious disturbance
#AGN? not very compact but quite bright & some (post-merger?) irregularities? no z or spectra available
UvS; post-merger? and starburst? no spectra on the system;
looks like a bit of interaction; but can't find either on NED or SIBAD; is my comp playing up?
is that a tiny elliptical peeking out from behind this SB?
trouble classifying this one; is there a long but faint bar in the middle?
I'd like to see the fireworks when those eventually collide:-)
just amazing; what sort of interaction could cause that?
cup cakes anyone?😃
any ideas what's going on here?
or #artifact? galaxy looks like nearby elliptical;
another fab shot; what would a quasar look like seen through another galaxy?
close shave with smaller neighbour? no redshift or spectra available but lots of bright blue stars; starburst in both?
something wrong with filters?
something wrong with equipment?
#star? no info on NED or Simbad although Skyserver Navigate indicates galaxy
left is at z=0.0652 & if I'm reading co-ords correctly, right at z=0.0623; there doesn't seem to be much disturbance&the one that's closer..
looks like it's covering the target with its outer bit (envelope?)
is the central star lensing whatever it is that's behind it? (you can tell I really want to find an example of grav lens:-))
cld there b a QSO in the centre? it's as red as any quasar I've seen
1 arm going all the way around it?
QSO z=0.197288; fab
#merger; QSO Sy1
this bright at z=0.109? starburst? and v regular shape again?
starburst acc to Skyserver; but very regular shape, no disturbance or signs of collision; how come it's starburst?
#overlap; target looks like starburst; not much data for either though
v bright centre, looks a bit like Seyfert but no z or spectrum available;
SAc? or SABc?
just thought it looks a bit like UGC 12646:-)
mismatch? SkyServer shows this galaxy (S0?) but SIMBAD comes up with a star
#double ring in optical?
is the red smudge at 8 a more distant galaxy being lensed by the target X-rayS?
IrG on SIMBAD
if it's starburst&broadline& quite a bit of OI alongside OII and OIII, cld it b Seyfert 2 or does the RadioS exclude that?
#dwarf? it doesn't look redshifted a great deal but no z on the system:-/
#AGN? quite bright centre, a lot of disturbance and bright blue stars on the edges - cld be post-collision?
odd; not much of a spiral or bar but huge ansae?
#outer ring or pseudoring?
#AGN at an angle? or just starforming? quite a break around 4000-A (if I'm looking in the right place on spectrum?)
#merger? starburst and lots of distortion; faint in infrared (IR) image but check out 'examine' under the picture, then Skyserver;
merging with another banana:-)
#living proof?😃 that ellipticals are evolved from spirals- looks like last bits of arms on the outside
#SB with a bit of a ring or disturbed? cld b starburst but redshifted; no spectrum or z available though;
#AGN; on SIMBAD: Seyfert 1
Starburst on Skyserve; distortion cld b due to ancient merger; spectrum (as far as I understand bits) shows young stars; not sure about AGN
#overlap? of E by UvS?
#QSO#AGN acc to Skyserver
#merger? with something small?
#AGN acc to Skyserver
#merger? or a close encounter?
#AGN according to SIMBAD
tiny and very faint; no z or spectrum; looks like a far away elliptical
#AGN on NED
sorry, been away a while:-)
or elliptical if SDSS is anything to go by
#starburst? result of merger? very irregular with lots of blue stars but no spectrum or z available!
post-collision? NED shows starburst galaxy but SIMBAD comes up with low-mass star and different coordinates - mismatch?
#merger? looks like post-collision starburst but no info on NED or SIMBAD about that;
looks like disturbed or irreg spiral but spectrum doesn't fit
SB with starburst&disturbance - post-collision?
IrS; what's the green object in the foreground arm?
#agn? very bright although no signs of disturbance or collision
is this a galaxy at all? no info on SDSS or SIMBAD; possibly elliptical in a cluster of ellipticals?
#agn on SDSS
SkyServer shows two spiral gs but no z or spectrum for target; its neighbour's spectrum looks like spiral but not much info on SIMBAD
#agn? can a radio g have an agn? there's starburst here in KUG 1413+121, disturbance but no compact bright centre
#agn? bright, compact centre, some post-collision features in the spiral and star formation
amazing look on SDSS
very irregular shape; starforming, z =0.02
#merger? both gs starforming; but target z =0.081 and the small g z=0.178;
UvS, no z
some irregularity; not sure at all what's going on
#agn? pretty bright centre, post-collision disturbance and star formation?
VCC0550 with H I line; what a weird spectrum
a bit odd shape, though; as if something was pulling strands off the edges
UGC 07976 with the most amazing ring of stars showing up in visible light - stunning thing! result of merger?
#voorwerpjes next to the star on the right?
#merger; spiral in front with AGN, a lot of disturbance;
IR source - does that depend on the age of g?
#merger? no z for either and spiral obstructs target but disturbed enough?
#outer ring; SBb type galaxy?
disturbed and UvS - black hole in the making?
my previous z record beaten:-)
#ring; and z=0.090 - the biggest I've seen so far!
very irregular, no spectrum available but the blue might be early start formation?
some irregularity and heavy dust line- post-merger?
CGCG 119-043; another one with H I line
#agn? spiral settled into regular shape but two extra arms look like post-collision add-ons; no info on SIMBAD
CGCG 068-010 starburst; says 'HI line' under 'kinematics' - is that what's being emitted?
#agn? bright compact centre, disturbed disk; have all the galaxies that are on SIMBAD been checked for agns? no info on this one;
why starforming more at that end though? what's 'kinetics'? and where between all the numbers can I find it?
#agn?disruption level like IC478; shortest arm kind of add on & 1 arm knocked off symmetrical axis with longest; can't find agn on SIMBAD
#merger? lots of hot blue stars roughly where the two gs might be intersecting; can't find z for the small one behind;
are these galaxies at all? merging? or pair?
#ring and a half!
looks great on SDSS - is that post-merger with young stars showing up in blue?
#agn? bright compact centre and spiral that looks like post-collision dust is settling
2 different gs, it seems; dust in foreground obstructing part of brighter (elliptical?) one? #YGAGAM (your guess as good as...😃
3 gs post-merger? very close z for 2 of them, no z for 3rd
how can I change my classification? looks like disturbed here but SDSS shows clearly it's 2 separate gs;
#merger? late stages? two elliptical gs?
glare from the star outshines part of the spiral? at least in visible; would do the same in IR?
#QSO according to NED; G at 4 o'clock
looks amazing in SDSS - ring of hot blue stars formed after a merger? and disturbed cloud underneath it?
#merger or at least close encounter (different z values)
what could cause such a weird shape?
pretty isn't a bad description either 😃
bar seriously off centre
#merger? or close encounter? quite some but odd disruption; can't find z for the south galaxy;
irregular disk, huge centre
#merger? or results of an ancient merger, more like? weird shape
yes, but how likely is it that it's got an ang? how can I find out?
#merger? some disruption, esp. in visible
#is this a small cluster?
and those two peeking out on either side - is that lensing?
lensing (the red dot at the bottom) of another, more distant galaxy as well?
just whaaat is this thing?
