MRK 0178 is a very blue nearby irregular galaxy seen in front of the Abell 1314 galaxy cluster. Several sources list it as being a double galaxy and one says triple yet I see only one. There\'s a field star on top of it that I suppose could be seen as a galaxy as well as a bright blue knot on the southwest side that is far larger than the small ones to the northeast that likely some see as a separate galaxy. I only see one, however. It has a faint extended halo that more than doubles its size. Redshift puts it about 21 million light-years away while non-redshift measurements say it is much closer at 13 million light-years. Depending on which you believe it is 13,400 or 8,300 light-years in size. Either way, it is a dwarf and this counts the faint halo. Using the brighter inner region it is only 6,500 or 4,000 light-years across.

Markarian galaxies have nuclei with more Uv emissions compared to other galaxies. I\'m not sure what qualifies as the nucleus of this one, the bright blue blob I suppose. Nearly all Markarian galaxies are very blue and many are dwarf galaxies like this one.

To the northwest is another very blue galaxy that is pretty messed up. While blue, UGC 6538 isn\'t a Markarian galaxy. It is a rather normal sized spiral of 40,000 light-years in diameter and at over 10 times further away with a redshift distance of 150 million light-years. What messed it up is unknown. I searched for nearly a degree around it and found nothing at its redshift but dwarf galaxies with one exception. Right at the top edge of my image is a small undisturbed galaxy at the right redshift but it is not disturbed in the slightest. It might be the result of a merger. I found nothing on it.

Abell 1314 is completely unrelated as it lies about 4 times further away than UGC 6538 and at least 22 times further than MRK 0178. Its core region lies to in the southeast corner of my image and is anchored by IC 0712 which NED classifies as S? though I see no hint of spiral structure. The cluster is group 0 meaning it has 30 to 49 members. Though there are more than 50 in my image alone so I don\'t understand the discrepancy. Morphology III which means it has no dominant galaxy though NED seems to indicate that honor goes to IC 0712. It is spread over a circle of 80 minutes of arc so much larger than my field of view which already contains more member galaxies than its group would indicate.

The cluster has three large galaxies that made the IC catalog, IC IC 708, 709 and 712. All were discovered by Lewis Swift on May 11, 1890. IC 708 is sometimes known as the Papillon Galaxy. Why I have no idea. It certainly doesn\'t look like a butterfly (Papillon is French for butterfly). My wife lived near the town of Papillion, Nebraska and they put a butterfly on their water tower proving Nebraskan\'s flunked French spelling.

Just west of IC 712 is the strangely warped galaxy [BFW2006] J173.67629+19.07935. To the northeast just west of the bright star (12th magnitude) HD 100597 is a warped looking galaxy. It is nearly lost in the Sloan image. Maybe that\'s why they and no one else at NED picked it up. I found it totally missing from NED and SIMBAD. I\'ve noted it with a question mark.
