M81 and M82 in Ursa Major, a pair of galaxies also known as Bode's Galaxy. 82 is the easiest, being brighter and having more variation, 81 is a bit more difficult. 82 makes a very nice webcam target.

Jupiter Is starting to rise in the early hours and is a good target for the early risers or late stayer uppers, it's gradually getting earlier so in the next month or two will be better placed.
