Excellent first attempts. How did you control the noise? Did you use long exposure NR or a manual dark frame? Care to provide a 100% crop? I always shoot my wide field astro at base ISO on the D90, and have typically used the 50 1.8d wide open to fit in a whole constellation. Certainly wouldn't mind an extra 7 stops if post you can get decent results in post.

I envy you for your dark skies.
