The actual photo of the sky showing SAO 206400 is shown below.  It was taken by the Bradford Telescope, located on Tenerife, using camera Galaxy on Thursday 18 March 2010 at 05:01:22 UTC.

Thank you to the folks who make the telescope available to the masses.  Visit this link to find out more about it.

The actual .fits (Flexible Image Transport System) file (93096.zip) is available HERE.  To use it, you need to have a 'fits' viewer, available for free at http://heasarc.gsfc.nasa.gov/docs/software/ftools/fv/.
