The Orion Nebula is one of the most famous objects in the night sky, even people who have nothing to do with this hobby might have heard of it. Because of its size and brightness, it is one of the first objects that every astrophotographer will photograph. The Orion Nebula is one of the only objects in the sky that has such a high dynamic range that you might need several exposures of different lengths to show everything from the brightest structures in the core to the fainter dust in the surrounding area of the nebula.
