Bodes Galaxy is a large, bright galaxy found in the Ursa Major constellation.

This image was taken from the Blackfoot Staging Area near Edmonton. The exposure time is a little short, just over two hours. While taking this image the wind whipped up and blew my astro-tent into the telescope. It knocked over a few things and shut me down for the night. All my fault too, the tent wasn't secured properly.

After this incident I packed up and headed home. I was sure the entire night was ruined. But no, even though the night was was cut short, the image still came out not too badly so all was not lost.
