Wonderful picture, from a dark site?

I took almost the same picture on 2020/08/06 from my red zone backyard, but with a lot simpler gear (Nikon Z6 iso400, Nikkor 105 mm f/2.5 at f/4, 6x30 sec on a SkyTracker, with a lot more noise. NGC5053 is almost covers by the comet's tail. The faintest stars shown are +14.5

My objective was to test an Az/El pointing and star chart alignment procedure.

Clear skies
