What might be called the Crab nebula in the summer sky is unlike the famous winter object in that it is quite faint and mostly red. Not much structure but a larger telescope should pick up the darker area in the nebula and finer detail. The nebula responds best with the hydrogen-alpha filter and is very weak in the standard RGB color filters. A wider field of view can also pick up the near by SH2-75.

This nebula, located well above the galactic plane in the direction of the Aquila Rift dust clouds, is dim at visual frequencies but appears as a large bright bubble in infrared, as can be seen in this MSX image, and is also prominent at radio frequencies.

The nebula lies in the same approximate direction as the radio source W45, but Westerhout noted that the identification of this radio source with Sh 2-76 was "probably incorrect".

On the other hand, Avedisova includes W45 and Sh 2-76 together in star formation region SFR 40.44+2.45 along with 5 masers and several other HII regions visible in infrared.
