Another Northern Hemisphere Wonder

Today's Astronomy Picture of the Day shows Messier 81, in the constellation of Ursa Major (the Big Dipper for all you non-Latin reading astronomy types!). Take a look in binoculars or telescope with a low-power/wide field of view eyepiece, this galaxy is nicely placed for autumnal viewing.
