Glad to see someone else jumping to do night shots! I'm curious as to your camera/lens/ISO and aperture settings. Did you use a cable release or timer for the last shot? Plus I see delays between each shot. What caused these delays and what program did you use to put your shots together?

all the exif is still on the pictures.

no cable release :/ just that little nikon infrared remote, but i plan on plugging it up to my computer next time and triggering it that way.

the delays were because i was fiddling with the remote trying to trigger the camera

and i used adobe cs4

The "D" 40 - 90 is in the same league as Canon's 20, 30, 40, and 50d line and having done many night shots with the 20d, 1600 ISO was the max I'd push the sensor for these 30 second shots. The noise was just too destructive to go higher. If you end up upgrading to the D300 - 700, then pushing ISO's much higher is within it's ability.

Aperture at 2.8 and wide angle is spot on!

I was wondering if you have the ability with the remote to lock the shutter so you don't have to try activating it all the time.

Not sure if you've seen my article on the subject but I wrote an easy 'how-to' shoot star trails eliminating a lot of confusion.
