NGC 214 (LW)
There is a dramatic change in the dust structure between the central
kiloparsec and larger scales. The circumnuclear region is relatively
smooth except for a few dust lanes, while at larger scales the arms
are much more fragmented, fill the galaxy disk, and have some
associated star formation. The position angle of the ring-shaped
transition region between the circumnuclear disk and larger scales is
offset approximately 30^deg^ from the position angle of the host
UGC 438 is a galaxy with a small bulge and a distinct exponential disk with
some enhanced star formation in the spiral arms near the center. All fitting
methods seem to be equally justified, but notice the very extended bulge in the
case of the r^1/4^ bulge profile.

The two brightest arm fragments in NGC 214
start from the edge of a high-surface-brightness
disk close to the center. Some of the faint
outer multiple arms branch from these two main
inner arms, but others exist throughout the
moderately high surface brightness intermediate
disk, similar to the earlier pattern in NGC 2841
(panels 142, S4, S12).
The HII regions are unresolved at the 1"
level. The redshift of NGC 214 is v_o = 4757 km/s.
