M81, M82 and IFN

M81 and M82 are two famous galaxies that lies in the Ursa Major. A target of choice for beginners in astronomy. You should already know them, there are already in my gallery. In the lower left of the image you can also see NGC3077, a smaller galaxy.

The goal of this acquisition was the faint dust that lies mostly in right half of the image. This a very faint reflective nebula that actually lies in a large part of the sky, from the north celestial pole to Ursa Major, is the integrated flux nebula (IFN) A somewhat difficult target for a DSLR and this is my second attempt at capturing it.
