Here is a stacked image of a few 30 sec and a few 10 sec shots.

 

Setup: cheap Nikon lens at ~200mm mounted on 5SE mount.

ISO 400.

Images captured close to a giant street light with half a moon. :-)

I saw this pair last night with Venus just below the Pleiades in my 10X50 binoculars. Your very nice image is a good reminder of what I saw.
