The irregular dwarf NGC4214 was made famous by the classic Hubble telescope shot which highlighed the amazing star forming regions.
While this image struggles to catch more than a hint of these regions it still make a great shot - with a very large amount of tiny background galaxies visible, least of all the visible smudge of PGC 86372 in the lower right.
Who knows that traumatic history this object has had!
