Messier 81, also called Bode's Galaxy, is a spiral galaxy located about 12 million light years away. It is visible in the Northern Hemisphere through binoculars or small telescopes in the constellation Ursa Major, near the halfway point between the edge of the Big Dipper, and the North Star.

Extra Galaxies Credit & Copyright: 2006 Astr. Campers, Adam Block (Caelum Obs.), CSS, U. Arizona Alum..Assoc. Careful inspection of the full field of view for this sharp composite image reveals a surprising number of galaxies both near and far toward the constellation Ursa Major. The most striking is clearly NGC 3718, a warped spiral galaxy found near picture center. NGC 3718s faint spiral arms look twisted and extended, its bright central region crossed by obscuring dust lanes. ...
