Arp 235 (NGC 14)

  Arp 235 is another member of the class Appearance of Fission.  The Atlas note says "faint outer oval and resolution into stars".  This image shows both those impressions but, as noted for Arp 234, I don't think the resolution is into stars.  More likely, the apparent stars are star-forming regions or possibly exceptionally bright clusters.  The 4X detail image shows the resolution best.
