Is this object contaminated?
When I usually see those horizontal lines on stars in DSS2 images, the WISE images appear to be contaminated with dust. However, in this image it is not the case. Is it because it's a blend of two objects?

Those lines look like structure in the saturated PSF of the star, rather than anything that should(?) correlate with dust in the mid-IR. I think this still looks like a #goodcandidate, with interesting structure in the SED
