From Wikipedia;

  NGC 6760 is a globular cluster[2] in the constellation Aquila. It may have contributed to the formation of the open cluster Ruprecht 127 (RA=17 37 50.9 DEC = -36 18 32) during NGC 6760's passage through the galactic disk 71 million years ago.
At least two millisecond pulsars   PSR J1911+0102A & PSR J1911+0101B  have been found in NGC 6760.

  Its position near the galactic plane causes it to be obscure by galactic dust and gas making it appear reddish.
