Are you getting tired of elliptical shell galaxies yet?
The shells NGC 3923 are more difficult to distinguish. They are also interestingly symmetrical while other shell galaxies are seemingly much more random. It is possible to process them more aggressively to make them more apparent but I think that would do a disservice to just how tenuously demarcated they are.
A curious knot of dust is present in the foreground. I’m unsure if it is associated with the distant galaxy or if it is a local feature.
Full disclosure: Data was once again cloned to cover the distracting chip gap. I will happily supply a version without cloned data if anyone asks.
North is NOT up.
Hubble data is public domain, but I put a lot of work into combining it into beautiful color images. The minimal credit line should read: NASA / ESA / J. Schmidt
