Next new Moon, have another look at M42, and spend some time with higher powers on it. You should be able to pick up more details that you may want to add to your sketch. You'll be amazed what you'll pick up at around 125X and 200X, particularly around the dark pillar and the Trapesium.
Thanks Alex.
Next new moon is Christmas day, I see that going down really well

Thanks Paddy, that's very kind of you. As long as I am improving I'm happy.
