ARG0002esi - rather unusual host

    SDSS J080601.51+190614.7, z_sp 0.098, has a pretty 'dead and red' spectrum ... apart from the obvious AGN features:

    It's also not really your common, garden variety boring elliptical (is that a double nucleus, perchance?):

    Anyway, it's pretty obviously the host of strong radio emissions (core? yes; at least one lobe? yes; asymmetric? yes; what else?):

    Boilerplate: SDSS image per, FIRST (red) contours derived from the FITS file produced using SkyView with Python code described in this RGZ Talk thread. Image center (J2000.0) is the galaxy SDSS J080601.51+190614.7; "z_sp" its SDSS spectroscopic redshift.
