Orion Nebula from the Black Forest

This is my sketch of the orion nebula, drawn on September, 5th 2013, 4:30h at Kaltenbronn Hohloh, black forest, germany, at 998m with my 18″ Dobson Telescope at 135x using an UHC filter.
Height: 18 degrees over Horizon

Drawn with pencil on white paper, scanned, inverted, and processed to remove “dust-stars” from scanning, darkened, and used the smudge tool to recreate the filaments in the nebula.

Kind regards,

  1. Nice sketch, specially because the target was only 18° above horizon. It looks very tridimensional, good job.
    With such a big scope, do you see it in which colors?
    I see it green with a 7.1″.
