Beginner: Lines in image.

In the past two months, I've done some beginner stacking with Andromeda and Pleaides.

The last couple of night I've been working on Orion, and I'm noticing random-ish lines on my files that I didn't see when working on the prior subjects.

The gear and settings are almost identical ( Nikon Z50, Rokinon 135 f/2, MoveShootMove, 20seconds, f/2.8, ISO 800) so my gear hasn't changed.  The time of year has.  I did recently add a simple USB "dew heater" wrap... could that be it?

The "lines" are subtle.  I know they aren't meteors or airplanes, and there's too many of them on top of each other to be slow moving satellites (?)

End of night, looking for Witch Head.  I think I'm in the right area (?)  Notice prominent "lines" on top right of image.

This is a crop showing subtler "lines" towards middle of image.
