An absolutely amazing region of the sky, near the very center of our Milky Way Galaxy. M24 is a large star cloud in the center, flanked by multitudes of star clusters, nebula and dark clouds. Above I have selected extreme enlargements to the original negative of individual objects of interest in the field.
