    I may be on the wrong track here, but here goes:

    I see Sirius as the prominent star towards the right.  Adhara is about a third of the way between Sirius and the horizon and further to the right.  Close tothe rocket on its right hand side is Procyon (I think).  

    Moving to the left of the rocket, down low, about half way up the left hand rocket fin and out a little is Regulus.  Above, but near the top of the rocket (as to the vertical, but above Regulus as to the horizontal) is Pollux.

    I think Betelegeuse is not far out of the image at the top and Rigel must be a little bit out of the picture to the top right.

    Now lets see what sort of a mess I made of that ;-).
