Hi all!

Finnaly! After a very long and hard work, with my first sketch of The Orion Nebula, am I done with it!

That took my a very long time!

Ive skeetched the area with my 10" dobson. My eyepiece was my 5mm hyperion+ an UHC-filter!

Hope you understand my english, I'm from Denmark and not very good.

Andreas,

A great sketch!

It is normal that such a sketch takes time to finish.

Thank you for sharing this sketch.

I look forward to more such sketches, Andreas. :cool:

Andreas,

This is a dramatic and beautiful sketch. :cool: You have made a masterful drawing of this emission nebula and included the trapezium which one can see so nicely at the eyepiece but washes out in photographs. Thank you for posting this beauty.:waytogo:

Frank :)
