Here is one of my 1st tries at the Orion Nebula. I hoping once I've done the Galactic Hunter course I'll have improved considerably! I struggle a bit with an AltAz mount so my exposures are limited to about 10 secs max to avoid start trails and I'm not very confident with the post-processing yet, but I hoping the course will help! Even with my current 'novice' status, I was quite pleased with this shot. Looking forward to see how much I can improve on this once I've learned a bit more on the course!
