You also got NGC1647 to the lower left of Aldebaran, and some large dark dust streamer at the left of the frame. Your 50mm lens does not distort stars at the edges and corners, by the way, which is it?
EDIT: Never mind, I reread the page and saw the lens is a Sigma 18-50 zoom. You removed light pollution and chromatic aberration with filters.
