Another Andromeda galaxy NGC 891

Yesterday night I shot the other Andromeda galaxy, NGC 891 edge-on in which we are in its galactic plane.
I took 40 frames of only one minute with the R6 mounted behind a 110mm f/5.5 ED (FL=600mm). The image here is 2x cropped, like a 4/3 sensor sees it.

I saw some spots on the image between the stars, so I wondered, what is with my sensor ??  But checking it with Stellarium it appeared to be several fainter galaxies in the neighborhood, mostly below left. Stars displayed are till mag +15.

It was so clear that while my rig was taking frames, I grabbed my 80mm tabletop and popped in a 13mm Nagler T6 (40x), but was unable to discern the galaxy visually. Probably is my Bortle 5 backyard too bright.
