M8 Lagoon sketch Sm
 
 
M8 Lagoon Nebula
Drawn on 7/3/19, around 1am
10" Meade SCT LX200 Classic, 6.3 reducer, 32mm plossl, DGM NPB filter ~49x
from a few miles north of Mammoth, Arizona
Pencil on paper, inverted in Photoshop
Not sure what direction is north 
Transparency was good, seeing mediocre
 

This was my first sketch ever. I wasn't planning on sketching, so this was just drawn with a mechanical pencil. I could have spent another 30 minutes adding tiny faint stars smile.gif
