That deep purple does tell me that there’s dust between us and IC 10.
Definitely looks like a dwarf galaxy (I just imaged the Draco Dwarf but it has no star-bursting).

IC 10 (UGC 192, PGC 1305, LBN 591 and others) is a dwarf, star-burst galaxy approximately 2.4 million light-years away in Cassiopeia. It is a member of the Local Group. This galaxy would be a lot brighter if it wasn't obscured by the dust in the plane of the Milky Way.
