I thought "light" was the 1st rule for getting sharp photos...

It is, you just haven't factored in 'time'.When you expose at 10s at f/1.8, you're going to let in a lot of light regardless. When they say you need 'light', they mean that you need to control the light that you have.

Also, f/1.8 is very unoptimal for the lens. Since you were shooting on a tripod, you could have made the same exposure at 30s and f/4 and would have achieved an even sharper image.
