M81 and M82

So if you have a RCOS 14.5" version of M82 and M81 what to you do (no you don't make a M163!).

Seeing them together would be nice so used some data from the RH and drizzled it to create a background with stars that are acceptable then added the two targets over the top.

Think this will finish my detailed look at this area, for now!

Hope you enjoy.
