    Here's ARG00018dy, which appears to be a #doublelobe.

    The contour overlay image in this post was created from sources, and using methods, described in this RGZ Talk
    First in red.

    A possible host for the emission could be SDSS J073950.90+383759.2, which had a DR7 z_ph=0.205 +/-0.167. There doesn't appear to be any radio references nor ALLWISE references for this galaxy.

    There is an NVSS reference in NED for SDSS J073950.18+383805.2, which is listed as a star. This object has an ALLWISE reference, ALLWISE J073950.18+383805.2.

    It's hard to definitively discern what is the host of this emission. There is always the possibility that it could be a background galaxy obscured by the strong ir source, which appears to be centred on SDSS J073950.18+383805.2.

    As always, comments, suggestions, welcome.
