Note: This is the richest area of the Milky Way visible from the Northern Hemisphere. Objects of interest include the Anatares region of Scorpius on the lower right, the Pipe Nebula in the lower center (looks like a pipe with smoke rising out of it), and the Lagoon, Trifid, Omega, and Eagle Nebulae (running up the spine of the Milky Way). I've identified some of these objects on my annotated pipe nebula.
