M81 & M82 in Ursa Major Objects were low in sky this time of year at my location and my scope was almost horizontal during shooting. I shot these objects over the city lights in Paris, IL with a Takahashi FSQ-106 and a Canon 6D camera. Total exposure time of the individual images before stacking was 62 minutes.
