    Hi Adam thanks for the question.
    I didnt have my shutter release with me so 30 seconds was the longest I could have the shutter open on manual. Even so 30 seconds was about all i wanted to leave the shutter open for so I wouldnt get too much movement of stars. I was already fully open with f4 (24 - 105mm lens) So I couldnt really slow the sensor ISO down as I was already at my limit with the shutter and f stop. Hope this explains my choice of exposure.
    Cheers from Australia John
