It’s great to see ‘Bodes’ - and there are several other galaxies in your image (including NGC 3077 & faint +13th mag NGC 2959!) it makes you think 👍

Thought I'd pop it into Astrometry.net after you said this.

 

So in addition to M81 and M82 we have NGC 3077 to the left, plus NGC 2959 and NGC 2961 (?) over to the right... 

 

NGC 3077 at ~13 million light years

NGC 2959 at ~203 million light years

NGC 2961 at ~207 million light years
