Object name: IC2233
IC 2233/FGC 2233 is an edge on very flat galaxy in central Lynx about 40 light-years distant by Tully-Fisher measurements. Redshift, which isn't all that reliable this close says 32 million light-years. It appears to lack any central bulge. NED classifies it as SB(s)d: sp HII. I imagine the blue star clouds are where the HII emission is coming from. Seligman says SB(s)d?. While there's no obvious core what appears to be its core is to just below two star clouds near its center. If so the core is off center and "below" the center of the galaxy. It was discovered by Isaac Robers on March 25, 1894.
