This is a blow up of a section... e300 at f/22 extremely long exposure. iso100.

I get rally great pics at other f/stops and normal exposure times, is this a function of the ccd not getting enough light? is it dirt? it appears in the same spots on every LONG nighttime exposure

Just in case you found the wrong answer, the little dots are called "hot pixels"...it happens during long exposures as the CCD of the camera heats up. You can reduce it by turning on noise reduction, but it will take longer until a picture is written to the card because after an exposure the camera then takes a second "black" exposure, and it will use that second (black) exposure to subtract most of the hot pixels from the first exposure.
