ARG0002r8f - major merger of large elliptical?

    Zooming in on the likely core (or should I say host?), SDSS J113233.07+134915.2

    Zooites classified its morphology as 'elliptical', but as the DR10 image is clearer than the DR7 one, I think it's safe to say they missed the messy stuff around it ... to me this looks very much like a major merger (and not an overlap; too disturbed to be an overlap). The interactive spectrum tool is down, so I can't check for signs of unusual features (though there's nothing obviously strange about the PNG version, which is what you'd expect of a dead and red ETG). Nothing in NED.

    Sure looks like major action taking place, or about to.
