Some of the best images of galaxies found in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey.

SDSS Ref. No. 588009370692288571
Another example of what I believe to be a lenticular galaxy, with some features of spiral galaxies and some features of elliptical galaxies. I would appreciate it if someone with more knowledge than me would tell me whether I am correct. You can either leave a message in the comments or e-mail me at email@example.com. Please excuse the slight artifact near the middle of the image.
Sorry, it's actually a spiral galaxy, namely NGC 4605. Am I too eager for a lenticular galaxy?
Born in England in 1975, I am currently training to become a certified optician while continuing with my current job of proof-reader. My hobbies include astronomy (as you might have guessed), kayaking and gliding. I am also currently classifying as many of the galaxies on www.galaxyzoo.org as I can, and posting the best images up on here.
