Misclassified galaxies

I found some obvious galaxies misclassified as point sources in DR10. Is it a known problem? Matching with external galaxy catalogues, I found hundreds of examples like the one below.

Hi,
Welcome :slight_smile: In this example, it looks like there’s a Point source right on top of a Sersic galaxy.
I’m not exactly sure how that happened. We avoid detecting sources too close to each other, but after fitting, they can move to be close. This galaxy is also a Gaia source.
cheers,
