Yes looks to me like a dusty spiral blocked by an irregular star pumper.

No redshift for the edge-on, pity…

Looks to have a spectroscoptic redshift from SDSS. z=0.06008 +/- 0.00001

Yeah I found the redshift for the starburst part to be that, or is this for the edge-on? Than they would be at the same redshift / interacting (or major starburst area inside edge-on!)

Ah, I see what you mean. Yeah, doesn’t look like there have been any spectra taken of the edge-on itself. Tricky.
