Hi Justin your sketch is just perfect, this is exactly what you can see in your material! The relative magnitudes representation of the stars are precise as well!
Thank you to post here !

Nice work, Justin. You caught the SN at the early stage of its evolution.

A very good drawing and effort on your part given that probably sky conditions had a greater effect on the view than your telescope's small aperture. I never saw much of the dark lanes with my 6-inch either under the usually poor skies here.
