Sh2-79 in Aquila - RGB (and HaRGB below this image)

Sh2 79


Maybe the most boring photo of all time? Sh2 79 isn't much to look at beyond being a very reddened star field. I'm suspicious that I was aimed wrong! LOL!

Here is the above image with H-Alpha added but it is rotated 45 degrees and thus cropped:
