M81 and M82, known as Bode's Galaxies, approx. 12 million light years distant. Smaller galaxy NGC 3077 at the lower left. M81 is the more face on spiral and M82, also known as the Cigar Galaxy, is seen edge on. All three galaxies are part of the M81 Group and are thought to be gravitationally linked.
A stack (in PhotoAcute for noise reduction) of three 60 sec. 400iso images with the G1 on my tele. Processed with layers and curves to bring out the galaxies and subdue the noise a bit more.
