You have captured a lot more than this image shows.  Hope you don't mind but I  ran it through StarNet to remove the stars then did a simple stretch in PS. This is what's there even using your posted jpg.

Can you add the stars again after all the stretching?

Yes its possible to add stars back in.  Its best though to start from the original raw image from the stacking process.  Starting with a jpg loses lots of info.

If you post the original I will give it another go.
