Owl Nebula and M108

Field centered on R.A. 11h 12' & Dec. +55 15'

 

This is a pretty couple of objects close to Merak, one of the two "pointers" of the big Dipper. On the left is M97, aka the OWL nebula, while on the right shines the litle galaxy M108.

Below are two enlargements at the original resolution.
