    I'm not astronomer, but the mystery star at 11:00 looks like it could be eta-Pyxis.
    I assume the line is drawn through beta- and alpha-Pyxis to gamma-Pyxis. Here are the stars in that constellation: 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
