Excited to share my very first astrophotography images and as is with most, I am starting with the Orion Nebula. I have been doing photography for a while but just got into astrophotography recently and have been reading up and practicing software since I ordered my kit in late Dec. I got my mount and tripod a few weeks ago which gave me enough to start with my DSLR setup and I recently got the the Celestron EdgeHD 8 telescope and the Canon EOS RA which is what was used for the most recent photo of Orion.
