It looks like this is too late however the general rule of thumb is at ISO 100 use f8 and ISO 200 use f16. You need to be using a tripod and set to bulb exposure so you can control how long the shutter is open for. If you have a black glove or something keep the shutter open and cover the lens with it in between bursts to allow them to be layered. With a bit of practise you can get some great results.
