Which direction was the camera pointing at while taking this picture?

North
South
East
West
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.
