This setup should work fine for image capture.
From the loks of the image you have missed focus thats why it isnt sharp or why its (soft).
Try using a focusing mask to get good focus.

Also you want to stack many sub frames to keep the signal to noise ratio good so you geet a good deep noise free image.

If you need further help let me know and I can point you in the right direction.

Focus is much improved
Just watch your tracking to keep the stars round and I think you will be in fine shape.
