Most of the nebulosity around Messier 8 was visible without a filter, but I made this sketch using an Orion Ultrablock UHC filter, which helped to increase the contrast of the fainter parts. The object almost filled the field of view my 22mm LVW eyepiece. There was such an enormous amount of detail visible, it was nearly impossble to sketch all of it.
(I would have to sketch the whole night on a larger scale to catch it all, but I had some more objects om my observing list that night!)
