Astrometry identified

After finally creating an Astrometry.net account, I uploaded—for fun—my Vivitar Series 1 image from the weekend.


Some of the neat data:

Center (RA, Dec): (308.780, 60.301)
Center (RA, hms): 20h 35m 07.274s
Center (Dec, dms): +60° 18' 04.710"
Size: 6.29 x 4.19 deg
Radius: 3.778 deg
Pixel scale: 11.1 arcsec/pixel
Orientation: Up is -90.3 degrees E of N

It is curious that it tagged NGC 6916. I can't see it in the image. But then, it's magnitude 15.
