ESO 115-021 (2014)

I want to say this is a dwarf elliptical. Sure is flat, though. It’s also quite a bit denser in the lower right part. Galaxy classification sometimes vexes me. It’s easy to see individual stars throughout the galaxy.

Full disclosure: I cloned data to fill in the chip gap which ran straight down the middle of the image.
