First star trail - LX7

First timer posting and capturing a star trail, I handled to get this, using a small set of 31 stacked pictures (didn't have much time that night), I had the LX7 with 25 sec exposures, F1.4, ISO locked to 400 Max, manual focus to infinity, camera mounted on tripod, as the photo shows is pretty bad, was taken in a soccer field, moon behind me and within the city, therefore lots of light noise; I am interested in hearing opinions about how could I fix this kind of problem, I have seen other star trails taken within city limits and these show not even close the amount of light noise like mine, the sky is grey, and

Any comments are welcome, thanks for your time.
