Sketching with an Ultrawide field eyepiece

What have been the experiences you sketchers have had in using these ultrawide eyepieces?

But with very wide fields, you'll run the risk that unless the magnification is high, the object will be very tiny on the drawing.
Here's a picture of the M81 galaxy group I did with my WO 72mm f/6 ED at only 21x. The field is 2.5° wide and as you can see, the galaxies are not so large in the sketch as they would appear in the eyepiece.

I have one low power 82 all the rest are 72/ 70.
So what are you using then? 68*? 82*?
Even if I didnt sketch I'd still like to see the field stop when looking through an EP.
