Nice results!

I would suggest cropping the image some, as I had to do quite a bit of scrolling to find it on my display at full resolution. Playing around with histogram stretching, exposure, gamma, curves, levels, and the other adjustments available in Photoshop might make your image stand out more and attract the eye's focus to where it should be by brightening it up a bit. That's saved me several times on my lunar images, but personal preference definitely comes into play here!

Excellent. I like all the black space - it conveys the infinitude of the vast abyss in which we reside
