Here is the H-Alpha channel only:

Sh2-79 in H-Alpha

According to "The very faint nebula in the image may be ionised by the B 2.5V class star S79 Other sources state that at least some of the visual emission in this direction may be associated with the supernova remnant SNR G49.2-0.7 (also called W51C) which is believed to be at a distance of 6 kpc."
