I was really excited to see that this months challenge over at CloudyNights.Com was to be Barnards Loop. I have always wanted to shoot this object but never had anything that could either frame it or was optically good enough. Well the 70-200L is optically almost perfect but I could have used a bit more sky. I may reshoot with my 24-105L if the weather cooperates near the end of the month. I think I went pretty deep and overall I am pleased with the image. I'd like another 3 hours but we'll see. JPEG Compression kills it so I will post a larger file by Saturday off site. Comments welcomed!
