DETAILS: The image data for this galaxy was supplied by Ron Wodaski as part of a class at New Mexico Skies in April 2003. I did the processing using Photoshop techniques studied during the class. The result turned out so well, Ron graciously gave me permission to post the result on the Website. Nice get, Ron!
COMMENTARY: NGC4214 is an irregular local group galaxy in the Constellation Canes Venatici, at a distance 3.2 million light-years. It has a bright inner starburst region, with knots of blue star-forming regions extending throughout the galaxy. An older red disk contrasts with the blue star-forminng regions to make a beautiful sight.
