Object name: NGC6012
NGC 6012 is a very weird looking barred spiral in Serpens Caput about 90 million light-years distant. The NGC project classifies it as SBa while NED using a more complex classification system says (R)SB(r)ab: LINER: They indicate it may have a LINER core which could mean a somewhat active feeding black hole at its core though it may be due to white dwarfs in the galaxy. Note the colons are about the equivalent of question marks so there's some question about this. Assuming the 90 million light-year distance is correct it is about 85 thousand light years across. A respectable size for a barred spiral.
