1. The camera must not be manipulated by the operator, other than to determine 
how long to keep the shutter open for. In particular, the camera must not be 
reorientated for the period of the exposure. This will ensure that whatever 
movement we capture on film will be due to the World's motion. Yes.

2. A size of R (= the radius of the World) or 1AU are both insignificant when 
compared to the distances to the stars. Yes.

3. The World takes 23h 56m 4.091s to rotate once about its axis. Yes.

4. The World takes 365.25 solar days to orbit the Sun. Yes.

5. The difference between a solar day and a sidereal day is approx. 4 mins. Yes.
