Uhh, Couple of questions:
Your Post is entitled “New to Deep Sky imaging.” But your asking us how something “looks”. So I’m assuming you’re pointed at the Orion Nebula and want to know what it looks like visually through your scope?
What kind of eyepiece are you using if you’re looking through the scope?
”Imaging” here typically means your taking some sort of electronic assisted image with a CCD camera or other device.
Answers to these questions will help others help you.
In general, the Orion Nebula through a scope visually looks like this, but it largely depends on field of view and magnification: : https://images.app.g...iFU5YgzsLuMHex8
Edited to add the word “visually” in two places for clarity.
