Milky Way galactic center

Milky Way galactic center

Back in the good old days when I could get Kodak 35mm, :-) I popped the camera onto the 4.5" reflector for a 5 minute exposure. The image was made during the early 1990's and the 2 giants Uranus and Neptune are in here from memory, I seem to remember going over the stars with an astronomy map, found something not on the chart, and then headed off to wind planets around, ah haa. There was something I had never seen in the telescope, (couldn't see what I was looking for), yet it was on the 35mm film.

Where was this taken? What was it that wasn't on the chart?
