    I'm not astronomer, but the mystery star at 11:00 looks like it could be eta-Pyxis. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Pyxis_IAU.svg
    
    I assume the line is drawn through beta- and alpha-Pyxis to gamma-Pyxis. Here are the stars in that constellation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_stars_in_Pyxis I'm sure there are better resources than wikipedia.

    One more thing I just noticed.  The movement of the stars in the photo is
    nicely lined up with the expected rotation around the south pole as you
    would expect if you did a picture with a tripod instead of a motorized
    mount.
