Here's my sketch of M16 through my RV-6 telescope in Prescott, AZ. Not sure specifically what zone its in but I've never seen so many stars. Note the "Pillars of Creation", something I've always wanted to see and finally did! Eyepiece was a 22mm Lanthanum and a Celestron UHC filter.

Edit: The photo might of came out sideways, apologies
