  1. Borja,

    Nice post. The Orion nebula can be seen even in heavy light pollution.
    It is even worthwhile to go out and capture it as you have here.

    Thank’s Frank. Yes, the Orion Nebula is one of the greatest deep sky objects wherever you can see it.
    I have to say that this sketch is my second sketch of all my life. I have to practice and enjoy much more.


  3. Borja,

    M42, M43 are always a pleasure to see. Amazing the amount of detail that is present despite light polluted skies. Thank you for posting and nicely done.
