Ever think of just asking your neighbor about it? I mean, real or fake, there are privacy laws and perhaps it is really wide angle and can barely capture his back yard properly. So, he may show you right away to help ease your concern, and the view of your back yard may be something you appreciate from a friendly neighbor down the line.
I've seen how wide-angle some of these security cameras are and it may be pointed towards your home, but it's just getting a wide view of the guys own back yard, and deck area.
Worth asking about IMO before discussing with any authorities as I expect it is very harmless and not a 'zoomed' camera, but a wide angle. Either way, he may be happy to point it at a slightly different angle to ease concerns. Moreso, if you work with him to find an angle that works for his home security and your peace of mind that it isn't pointed right towards your door/window.
Weird to install such an old camera design though. Sylvania? Really?
