    Mmmm, I don't see anything, but it does look like a nice cluster that could cause lensing. Maybe one of my counterparts could look...

    on my screen there is a very distinct orange ring with a yellow center-wondering what it is exactly

    I can see a thin blue smudge from centre to about 11:30, curving around the orange galaxy cluster at about a distance of 12".

    Not sure. Can't see it.

    Possible it is a large thin arc which this telescope doesn't have the resolution to see properly. It may need Hubble. Is that it?

    I don't see a large orange ring on this computer though. I could go to another one.

    I can see the orange core but it doesn't look like an arc as far as I know.

    going from large red in cluster
    towards 2 o'clock blue and then red objects,
    towards 1 o'clock red then blue
    (same in ugr and gri), no arc

    @tashipoo, can you describe this exactly, size, location, etc.

    it' s the large orange object--when I tilt my screen I see an orange "donut" with a yellow center. From 3 to 6 o'clock is an orange arc

    arc is right up against lg object--very hard to see

    To be honest I do not think it is a lens. I have look at it under magnification and there is nothing unusual.
