Magnificent sketch. It has been a while since I have seen one of your sketches. This one is truly beautiful.

Here is the result of yesterday night: I added a faint part on the top left, close to 2 small stars: An evanescent cloud, together with a small globule. Very faint, but well visible. I reinforced also M43, and the faint irisation blue-yellow- red, between the "blue" center and the red left part.

A beautiful and very accurate observation of the Orion Nebula. You have captured the core (with Trapezium) and extensions of the nebula very nicely. The colors noted are very impressive. I look forward to more of your observations on the forum. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
