This looks like a lot of work--I thought you were on holiday! I like the appearance of your widefield sketch and I am impressed with your determination. I was just out last night making an observation of the nova and taking in this view. Did you do this on white or black paper?
Here is a little feedback for your next attempt--I think the parallellogram of stars below Vega is a little too wide.

A very fine sketch that includes the dark lane in the milky way with great texture. I like it and am glad you did this sketch and posted it here.

White paper with a normal pencil for the stars and gray pastel for the Milky Way. At home I touched every star with a fine liner.

I keep that in mind. But you must accept with wide field sketches like this that it's impossible to have all stars at the right place

A such wide field must be very hard to do. Congratulation for the great effort.
