M82 - Irregular Galaxy in Ursa Major
Object # 15 Object Name:M82
Other Names:NGC3034, Ursa Major A
RA:09:55:54.00 Dec:69:40:59.00
Constellation:Ursa Major Season:Spring
Magnitude:8.6 Type:Galaxy - type Ir
Description:
This irregular galaxy is visible in a telescope but not in binoculars. It's easy to find if you've already found M81 as M82 is immediately north of M81. In fact I was able to have both galaxies visible in the field at the same time.
