Nice shots.

Fully open and ISO 6400 in RAW and even 12800 in JPEG, ICNR on,
High ISO NR on, 20 seconds (for a 24mm lens).

Focus on a light far away using live view and the magnified view. Trun off live view as quickly as you are done. Make sure lens is set to manual focus you don't want it trying to refocus later and messing up focus.

White balance ot daylight.

Exposure length is 600 divided by the focal length of the lens and the answer is seconds of exposure ie 600/24= 25 seconds is maximum exposure length before star elongation becomes an issue.

Give it a go and see what you think.
