Sky View is billed as “the Internet’s Virtual Telescope”. It allows you to view pictures of celestial objects in multiple wavelengths. You can run it interactively, or download a Java version. If you find it confusing, choose the “non-astronomer’s” interface, & check out their orientation page.

The SkyMorph on-line database enables searches for variable, moving or transient objects. It provides convenient access to optical images and catalogs generated by the Near Earth Asteroid Tracking program, including 1000s of images covering most of the sky. A bit clunky to use, but an amazing resource.
