I was looking through the scope and paying attention to M82. I moved the scope using the hand controller to go south (left) and there was M81.

Both M81 and M82 were in the same FOV, and both were small and medium brightness. Neat to see them both together.

M81 had a dark oval centre and a brighter oval shape around the core.
