The attached shows the Big Dipper marked in red and Polaris marked in red where it should be.

Thank you for your reply. I don't think the photo is enhanced except that it looks like a time exposure in some way. Maybe a really fast camera. Where do you see the "Big Dipper" in there?
I was doing some reading today, and I can see that there's no way to get longitude since there's no chronometer or equivalent time provided on the photo. But isn't there a way to find latitude from the positions of the stars???
