Yesterday, I used my Questar to observe Orion Nebula. I went with Brandon 24 mm as it gives me the best control with wide exist pupil. I live in the white area ( Bortle 8-9). Sky was relatively good with barely visible Orion sword. I didn’t want to mis this opportunity. In less than three minutes, I was observing the nebula from my open window ( My latitude is 30 N ). Lot of details appeared immediately and even more with averted vision and 1.6x internal barlow.

I tried for my first time to sketch a deep sky object. This would remind me what I have seen and it would give an idea about Q capability. I didn’t find any Orion nebula sketch via Q 3.5.

 It’s not up to standard but please remember it’s my first deep sky target sketch.

 

Regards

It was through open window. I apologize that I didn’t express accurately.

 

 Thank you for your nice words.

 

Happy holidays
