I would like to share the result of my first try capturing this area of the Orion Region. Moon wasn't helping much and a small earthquake hits my region throwing off my guiding so I was able to capture only 19 good frames.

 

Heres the image information

 

OTA: Stellarvue SV80

Camera: ZWO ASI183MC Pro, Guiding ASI120MM Mini

Mount: Orion Sirius EQ-G

Frames: 19x320 secs

I haven't taken a single photo yet.  I would frankly be thrilled with something like that.
