    Marginal: the key photometric parameter family is the exp (or Dev)AB_(band); this is the ratio of the minor to major axis length of a set of fitted ellipses, using the DeVaucouleurs profile (which most normal and giant ellipticals follow, more or less) and exponential profile (disk galaxies; though it's not good for Eos). Ellipticals can be classified by the 'ellipticity', which is simply the rounded integer 10*(1-b/a); while some dwarf ellipticals are E6 and E7, as far as I know, no normal or giant ellipticals are so out-of-round (and there are few E5s).

    For this galaxy, the g- and r-band parameters are (Dev then exp): 0.30±0.03/0.36±0.03 0.39±0.01/0.41±0.01

    Definitely an #SDRAGN candidate, as it does seem to have faint #doublelobe
