    In the future you can identify star fields quickly and easily here:
    http://live.astrometry.net/
    
    Note that the "live" part of the URL is a secret entry into this website. 
    There seems to be no links to this page anywhere on the web and the "live" 
    pages aren't indexed by google.
    
    The astrometry service is extremely fast (usually 30 seconds) and robust at 
    identifying any star field from a picture.  Despite planets, street lights, 
    trees, clouds, airplane trails.  And it works on telescopic 1 degree wide 
    field of view or wide field.   It's the google of star fields.
