This nebula sits in the heart of the Milky Way and is surrounded by a number of other objects including SH2-60. This rich nebula picks up very well using a hydrogen-alpha filter and makes a great HA-RGB color image. There is some nice structure in this nebula that a large telescope can pick up but a wider field of view is a better choice for this object because there is a lot that can be picked up in the surrounding area.

No significant references appear in the scientific literature for this nebula, which lies in the approximate direction of the star cluster NGC 6664 and can be seen in hydrogen-alpha as the brightest portion of a much larger nebula at the edge of the Sct OB2 association. The hottest star in the direction of this diffuse nebula is the O6 class HD 172275.
