Two galaxies in Ursa Major, roughly 11 million light years away from earth.  This page shows an overlay of this part of the sky from "The Sky" version 6.  When you hold your mouse over the image, The Sky overlays.  Move the mouse off the image, and my shot shows up.

The chart shows galaxies from both the PGC (Peculiar Galaxy Catalog) and the UGC (Uppsala Galaxy Catalog).  The designations and listed magnitudes (how bright they are) are shown.

The main M81/82 page is here.
