You are looking straight at the core of our Milky Way Galaxy, which is in the direction of the teapot-shaped constellation Sagittarius
Like most spiral galaxies, there's a lot of dust in the plane of the disk.

I can't help with telling what is what as I'm sure your star set up is different than USA set up, but I do have to reply to say if that is what is seen in the night sky in New Zealand, and NZ on its own is just so so so gorgeous scenery-wise, that's just more reason to move there.
Sadly I'll never have enough points to be allowed to move there Shame. It always has been my number one place to move. I'll have to settle for Aussie. Close enough I suppose, hehe.
That is a GORGEOUS pic and I hope someone on here will be able to help you out. I'm curious myself now. thank you so much for sharing. S&F for this gorgeous view.
