Orion Nebula and Other Nebulae shot on 50mm (nifty fifty)

This was from my Home (Bortle 6 to7)

This was captured during 4 nights totally,
Had a 2 and Half hours of total exposure time

I had stopped the F no to 4 due to heavy Chromatic abberation

U can see M78 in the right bottom edge

Settings Used:
3.2 secs
F 4.0
Iso 3200

Lights - 2650 subs ≈ 8480 secs Total
Darks - 25 to 30 per night (I forgot how much I took)
No Flats or Bias Frames

I stacked a day by day Individually and I had 4 stacked tiff’s for 4 days
And then I stacked the 4 tiffs into 1

I cropped Heavily due to heavy light pollution on the edges that were making the Image worse while processing.

Deep Sky Stacker can do this by itself. You can make use of Groups for this. You can read more about it here - DeepSkyStacker for Astrophotography | Beginner-Friendly Tutorial

Welcome,
If you have a tracker it would be best because U will have less frames with more details
