Arp 210 (NGC 1569)

Arp 210 is another member of the class Irregularities, Absorption, and Resolution.  The Atlas note says "much absorption and resolution into stars".  I believe the resolution is actually into star-forming regions, not stars.  Some of the brighter absorption structures are visible in the 2x detail image.

My processing created some halos around the brighter stars.  Don't mistake them for galaxies.  Other than Arp 210, the galaxies in this field are extremely tiny and faint.
