    This image has sat on my hard drive since March and I am pleased to upload it to join the many fine examples of M81 & 82 uploaded over the last couple of months. Processed to exaggerate the faint IFN and with high resolution data of M81 and M82 blended in using the data from our second rig at e-Eye, the TEC140 with QSI690 (previously uploaded as a mosaic) which comprises 56 hours of integration.
