This is my first ever image if the Orion Nebula, taken from my backyard a few days ago. as an amateur astronomer and astrophotographer... I am absolutely blown away by this.

This was 5min worth of data stacked in DSS.

I used a Celestron 70mm Powerseeker Refractor and my LG G6 to capture the data.
