it could be galactic cirrus

I think it might be a galaxy. Gaia gives a proper motion of 0.6marcsec/year, which indicates star, and should be within the detection limits of Gaia, which is accurate to 0.1,

but it looks like a galaxy to me. SIMBAD LEDA says galaxy, but I’m not going into the references.

Hi. I see, the central object looks to be a galaxy, while their neighbours are probably stars. I’m not sure if that’s real galactic cirrus upon further examination it looks like that its surrounding the galaxy, not sure what that could be
