Beautiful hoag!

I showed this to Mike Walmsley (who wants to search for hoag-type galaxies) and he’s impressed.

I think there’s an active project here for hosting Hoag-type galaxies ~ “Hoag Hunters”
I can post your findings there (although the list hasn’t been maintained since its creation about a year ago) I can ask him to fix some corrections:

cheers,

sounds good ~ there’s plenty out there waiting to be added to the list ~ I don’t usually post on Hoagie’s either ⊙
