The Antares - Rho Ophiuchi region in Scorpius.  Although not a single object, it is simply "splendid beyond compare", to quote Carolyn Porco and her description of the Saturnian system.

Experience: 2-4 Years

Astrophotography: Yes, I do take pictures through my telescope

Where I live
Avondale Estates, GA

Comments about where I live
 I love my town.  A great neighborhood.  Perfect for children.  But as it is a white zone, it's pretty lousy for astronomy.  Bright objects are there, and I have good night vision, which allows me to eek out some low brightness stars.  But low surface brightness objects are gone visually.  As for astrophotography, separating low brightness details from the skyfog and maintaining an exposure that separates signal from camera noise is a bit of a challenge, but one that I continue to work on.
