Which part of the milky way does the image show?

  • enter image description here

    As a general question and more in specific regarding the image above: Which part of the milky way, planets, stars, clusters are included in the image?

    How can I know which entities are included in different pictures?

  • I wholeheartedly recommend astrometry.net for this sort of thing. It Just Works(tm); running on your image produced this output with absolutely no hints or guidance from me:

    For avoidance of doubt, I have no association with astrometry.net.

    I didn't even try astometry.net since some times it returns nothing back. I guess I got lazy, anyhow I appreciate the effort I' ll come back tommorow.

    I joined just now just to +1 this answer. I've never heard of this site and now I'm going to use it all the time. I'm in love. Thank you for this.
