Long exposure questions

I enjoy taking long exposures and am considering stacking a series of photos for star trails.

The way my camera is presently set up, it takes a period of time equal to the exposure duration to process the image.

What is the camera doing, taking a black screen shot?

Anyway, this time is obviously wasted when trying to take continuous shots for star trails without empty spaces in the trails.

What am I doing wrong.  Is there some settings I need to change to take back, to back, to back long exposures?

Also what ISO are you using?

I am using a D90 and a D7000.

I will thank you ahead of time.
