@HelmHammerhand: Haven't heard of this technique ever. I doubt though, if you have a such a good camera, then why wouldn't you have a Compass. But +1. Nice way!

@orangejewelweed: As Ben rightly said just above, that if you are looking that degree of accuracy, you should probably have a compass and other instruments. Unless you are snipping/bombarding (:D) someone out of sight, you could afford to err upto 5 degrees in a direction.

comment How do you locate the “North Star”?
@orangejewelweed: If I am on Equator, the Orion's Belt is my best bet for finding the North. But depending upon where you are, Orion's Constellation may or may not be visible. On Equator its visible all the time, but in India, I usually start seeing the Orion from around 7.30 pm, when I wake up at 2.00 am, its gone.
