Which direction was the camera pointing at while taking this picture?
The entire celestial sphere seems to rotate slowly around the North-South axis of Earth's rotation. So the camera must have been pointed North or South, depending on the hemisphere the photo was taken at. But the bright star in the center must be Polaris, as the south celestial pole currently lacks a bright star to mark its position.
