That's not bad considering you are using a camera which is designed for bright planets and the moon. You've been able to capture an image which isn't too different from that seen through a telescope, showing the bright core of the galaxy. The stars on the right are 11th and 12th magnitude or dimmer!
I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 500D for imaging.
