8 hours total time on this sketch.
Took a long time naming the stars and their symbols in the constellations, shading, and layering dots. This is a small fraction of the sky above. The Northstar (Polaris) can be found from the two stars on the bowl part of the Big Dipper (URSA MAJOR) and also Cassopia if you follow the middle star of the W. These two constellations are simple ways to find The Northstar.
These are some photographs that I took and sketched them out in the sketch book
