Messier 42 and 43

Hi Asod! This is the Orion Nebula and M43, sketched by me with my Dobsonian Telescope f/5 10”. I think M42 is the most beautiful object of our sky, i cried when I saw it the first time. So I decided to sketch it; I spent 45 minutes and I used black pencil on White paper, then the sketch was inverted and elaborated at computer. I hope you enjoy it!
