Orion Nebula Sketch from Hocking Hills

After reading some great suggestions in the CloudyNights Sketching forum I decided to pick up a Moleskine Sketchbook and some nice pencils and try my hand at the Orion Nebula.  So this past winter, I jumped in.  I confess, it is an intimidating object for me as it can be somewhat complex. And I like sketching with the Moleskine sketchbook.  I find I have better control with my pencils that way.  However, since I make many mistakes, when you erase a little too much, the yellow color becomes more white and it can be noticeable in my sketches.
