    One big lobe and compact source in the center

    Could be triple, but where is the other lobe?

    OK, so I just had a more detailed look at this radio galaxy. Yes, this is #triple .

    You can't see the other lobe because it's too faint and resolved out; there is a very slight hint on the right in radio image where some brighter emission can be visible (no contours). However, it is very dangerous to consider that left side brighter radio patch as an evidence for the second lobe normally, rather use it as possible triple to make sure someone follows up with more detailed investigation.

    Well spotted & good question though! 😃
