M8 - The first steps...

This was one of my first sketches, M8, the Lagoon Nebula. I do all my sketches at the eyepiece, so i (try to) depict exactly what I'm seeing.

When I'm in the mood, i try to sketch as many objects i can in one night, usually i do about 6 to 10 sketches. I use a pen for the stars and a smooth pencil for the nebulosity.
