Identifying stars

Is there software or an site where one can compare an image one has taken of stars and it identifies what the image is of?!


 


I think I've cracked the issues with my tracking on the AZ Goto mount, and I was playing with BackyardEOS and tried to image the Beehive cluster, but it doesn't look like what is in the books or on google images! I wonder how faraway I was.

I've put it in my gallery. I'm trying to get it uploaded to that website. If it doesn't recognise the Pleiades then it's never going to tell me what my random image is then :)

Typed in m44, but in fairness to the mount, i had aligned it and used it then went to m44 and then attached the canera body so there was probably a lot of shaking and moving and changing the weight distribution of the scope on the very flimsy tripod and poor old az goto mount
