    Interesting case

    Here is VLA FIRST image 0.005 degree centered at 23:17:12.70 +11:20:12.03 ( on the left ) and 23:17:13.44, +11:20:10.84 ( on the right )

    enter image description here
    enter image description here

    At 23:17:12.70 +11:20:12.03 we have ... A STAR ????
    SDSS J231712.70+112012.0 - No redshifts unfortunately ( could this be a QSO? )

    At 23:17:13.44, +11:20:10.84 we have Galaxy
    SDSS J231713.44+112010.8

    Both sources are nearby ( relatively speaking ) confusion is possible, which one is the center of this triple?

    NED search result

    There's only one radio core, and it's on the likely QSO object (GALEX source). So that's almost certainly the host galaxy of the double (triple).
