M42 in pencil

This Summer nebula brings to mind 1960's school days - and  first views with a friend's 4inch 'scope. I took a lot of photos. Yet this 2010 pencil sketch seems more natural - why? The bright stars have been tweaked with software to suggest their dazzling presence. Specs: 10in. F5. H-beta filter, at an urban site.
