I stretched the blue POSS II plate and can't find it there either. I
wonder if it is a processing artifact or a ghost image. The rest looks
great.

Thanks Richard - I've thought it had a dynamic quality - sort of cart
wheeling through space.

My guess is ngc 4399 - Simbad plots it in that area assuming my mental
shifting/flipping of the image/simbad plot is correct.

Now you've got me concerned - I don't believe it is an artifact but I
can't nail it down - the Poss plates aren't that deep - I'll keep
looking.

I tried a super nasty hard stretch of the SDSS image (attached). It is
severely clipped in blue but not red or green. I see no hint of
anything in that location.

NGC 4399 is the star cloud almost directly opposite the detached piece
in question, not far from a slightly orange star in your image. It is
well within the halo of the galaxy.

I've had internal reflections make such an object. I was sure it was
real but before I finished processing the image I retook it and there it
was. So now I was sure it was real. But then I realized I was using
the same centering as before within a pixel or so. So I moved
everything one minute of arc and tried again. It was gone! No sign of
it. I never did find a suspect for it. No bright star nearby at all.
Since then I've had it happen twice more. Those times I trusted Sloan
and the DSS plates stretched hard and just cloned them out. Later when
they were back in the sky again a test frame showed I was right doing
so. Whew!

Amazingly deep image of this excessively faint galaxy.
I would prefer a bit less smoothing of the background, but that might just
be me.
