Getting star shots in the early evening is always a balancing act - shoot while they're high enough to get some clear seeing, and it's still light. Wait until it's dark enough, and they've dipped into the really hazy part of the atmosphere ( <geeknote> well, the light is travelling through far more atmosphere </geeknote> )
This is about the best balance.
Shot from our garden, as we are currently in coronavirus lockdown. Which is fine, since I wouldn't have gone anywhere else to shoot this anyway!
You can get the bigger picture, with added Moon, Orion, and the rest of Taurus here
