Orion Nebula Wide Angle – My First

This is my first Orion Nebula one shot right out of the camera. Not an award winning image but it my first. After shooting the Moon I swung left and upped the ISO and shutter speed and wham, there he is. I used the Canon Rebel T7i with the Rokinon 300 mm lens, f/6.3, ISO 25600, 1.3 seconds shutter speed.
