    I really don't see any lensing here. It looks like a bright spiral galaxy to me.

    Could be a #sim camouflaged by the spirals.

    Even with Dashboard, nothing is revealed to me. Just a spiral undergoing a bit of gravitational distortion.

    I'm puzzled! Budgieye says that spiral galaxies being lenses, not edge on, are extremely rare? The sims show many. Which is it?

    Both true, and a #simfail. A spiral would be expected to show lensing only when seen edge-on, when we see warped space near the nucleus.
