While at one of my local dark sky sites earlier this month, one of the sketches made was of M43. 

I present it here as my first post on the forum.  So if there's an etiquette or technical issue, I apologize.  wink.gif   

During the sketch, and actually all through the night, there were high clouds on the southern

horizon from Hurricane Dorian.  Fortunately they stayed put until sunrise.

Sofee, you rendered a striking sketch of M43. Not an easy target to see with much detail. You did very well. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for the kind comments.  Yes, the area of "The Great Orion Nebula" is worth spending some time just exploring.
