constellation star trails

At one of my favorite spots down on the Indian River in Florida, a brilliant harvest moon had just risen when I aimed the camera skywards and recorded a ten-minute exposure of the stars before the airglow got too bright from the moon. The moon sidelit the palms with a very deep color, but the stars came out surprisingly colorful, streaked by the rotation of the earth while the shutter was open.

And I chose this particular composition for a reason: Can you make out the constellation I framed? The three stars in a nice line in the middle should be a hint...
