Sagittarius Labled

Sagittarius Labled

Sagittarius is a rich region of the sky and this image which was taken from my back yard covers some of most interesting parts. The center of our galaxy is just off the lower right edge of the frame both rich star fields and clusters as well as bright and dark nebula can be seen. Lables are shown for some of the bright objects.
