SH2-276 - Barnard's Loop

Barnard's loop is a large emission nebula in the constellation of Orion.  Like most emission nebula, while large it is not easy to see with the unaided eye. 

This image was taken using a 200mm F2. 8 lens and a modified Canon T3i set at ISO 800.  It is a stack of three two-minute exposures. M78 is visible to the right center of the image.
