    multiple objects?

    Definitely not round at the shorter wavelengths. Hard to say whether it's because the object is a #galaxy or two objects very close.

    Well, I'm not very good with stars but can identify galaxies in DSS or SDSS. Do you know what/where this object is?

    If you click on the "More info on SIMBAD", you'll get the coordinates and perhaps some additional info.

    Well, after searching, the object is ambiguous in appearance but most likely a binary star.

    Hm, I think it might be a galaxy. SIMBAD has this galaxy at ~4 arcsec from the target position: 6dFGS gJ233214.4-363532

    Well, the SIMBAD information is mostly from a computer's guess. If you look at the DSS image in WIKISKY, there isn't enough nebulosity.

    I think it's galaxy not a multiple because stars usually follow blackbody Curve so tow stars curve will not form like this in SED
