I made this sketch with my 16 inch Meade LB telescope. This night, I had a good seeing (4/5). It was the first time I saw this nebulae and I enjoyed !! Even in a 16” telescope, it is very hard to notice the object without an OIII filter. Even with the OIII, the object is not luminous. But sketching this object permit me to reveal all the details the object had to give to me 🙂
