Hello. Nice find, this is a strange find here. I will have a check if it is in any catalogs. I don’t see any listed in polare ring catalogs, but it could not be one, although the bar is really weird, or a chance alignment.

Welcome! This is NGC 4735 and it is a somewhat well known starburst galaxy. Linked here are all the papers that mention this galaxy. A lot of them will be just general catalogues but there are some more useful papers too.

There are also a number of spectra and other information on this galaxy.

The brighter galaxies like the ones in the NGC catalogue are extensively studied usually, so we know the morphological classification, distance, redshift, etc.
