M40 was discovered by Charles Messier while searching for a nebula that had been reported in the area. The nebula was never found, so this double star system was logged instead. M40 is a binary star system found in the constellation Ursa Major. It is located approximately 300 light-years from Earth. The two stars have a visual magnitude of 9.0 and 9.3. A 4-inch refractor telescope can easily split the two stars, which appear as a single star to the naked eye.
