M82 Cigar Galaxy: Deep Sky Photo with the iPhone 6


M82 the Cigar Galaxy. It’s the fainter of the pair of galaxies that make up Bode’s Nebulae about 12 million light years away. They’re located in the northern part of our sky and never go below the horizon. I got this, of course, with the iPhone 6 in my backyard the other night! Turned out beautifully!
