Orion Nebula

Recommended Posts

I've viewed and sketched the Orion Nebula many times with small binoculars... It's one I haven't done with a scope.ย  I used x66 on this one and spent 15-20 minutes observing, the longer I looked, the more detail appeared.... Some real nice shape and structure could been seen, so I took a sketch...

80mm f5 with 6mm UWA x66

Very nice sketch Mark- I want to have a go at M42 too but itโ€™s too cold! How do you manage it in the freezing cold?!?



Lots of layers and fingerless gloves...

Very good observation and sketch of Orion Nebula. Difficult target to sketching . You captured the details very well through 80mm....nice work Mark!
