    Hi all. New to this. Am I right in thinking this one could be a galaxy? Any comments gratefully received, thanks.

    Looks extended to me--just try your best and look at some of the images others have collected/tagged.

    Misty Blue it's a #galaxy. Check the objects by clicking "More info on SIMBAD". Recheck the object by using SIMBAD coordinates.

    I don't understand why it doesn't ask if there are any other objects outside of the red circle that are noticeable, perhaps will be a moon.

    Hmm...moon. I am looking forward to the times when we will be looking for moons in similar images in some Zooniverse project 😃

    Well, in order to actually see moons in images, it'd have to be REALLY REALLY REALLY close. We wouldn't see moons even around Alpha Cen.
