To find the center of your document quickly, choose Select > All, then enter free transform mode (Ctrl+T/Command+T). A crosshair will appear at the center point. If you drag out a pair of guides, they will snap to this point. Hit Esc to exit free transform mode.

To find the center of a layer, select the move tool and choose "Show Bounding Box" from the options palette. A crosshair will appear at the center point.
