We present a detailed view of a galaxy at which is part of a large database of intermediate redshifts using high resolution images. We used the STIS parallel images and spectra to identify the object and obtain the redshift. The high resolution STIS image (0.05'') enabled us to analyse the internal structures of this galaxy. A bar along the major axis and hot-spots of star formation separated by 0.37'' (1.6 kpc) are found along the inner region of the galaxy. The analysis of the morphology of faint galaxies like this one is an important step towards estimating the epoch of formation of the Hubble classification sequence.
