Last saturday, I observed orion nebula.
I wanted to sketch M42&43 and running man.
But, I've made orion nebula too big!!
I'll try again this object, with different composition..

You have a great start here. :bow: :bow: :bow:

I commend anyone for taking the daunting task of accurately sketching M42. The nebula has so many subtleties and soft tendrils of light. It appears that you have very good dark skies to work from there in Korea.

I believe everyone sees it a little differently. If anything, you created a beautiful work of art. You will learn from it as you start the next work.

I look forward to seeing your next observations and sketching.

여기 좋은 시작합니다. : 나비 : : 나비 : : 도착 :

내가 정확하게 M42 스케치의 발굴 작업을 주셔서 아무도 추천. 성운 너무 많이 미묘하고 부드러운 빛을 이루고있다. 그것은 당신은 이미 한국에서 작업을 매우 좋은 어두운 하늘이 나타납니다.

모두 그것을 조금 다르게 볼 수 믿습니다. 뭔가있다면, 당신은 아름다운 예술 작품을 만들었습니다. 당신이 다음 작업을 시작하면 그것으로부터 배울 것입니다.

앞으로 다음 관측보고 및 사생을 다하겠습니다.

An outstanding observation of the great Orion Nebula and companion nebula (M42/43). You have captured the core and extensions very nicely. The labeled image is helpful as well. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
