Wolf-Rayet stars in M81
V. M. A. Gómez-González, Y. D. Mayya, D. Rosa-González


We here report the properties of Wolf-Rayet (W-R) stars in the nearby spiral galaxy M81. These were found while analysing the slit spectra of a sample of star-forming complexes, taken using the long-slit and Multi-Object spectroscopic modes of the OSIRIS instrument at the 10.4-m Gran Telescopio Canarias. Colours and magnitudes of the identified point sources in the Hubble Space Telescope images compare well with those of individual W-R stars in the Milky Way.
