I assume you used iso800 instead of a longer exposure to avoid star trails?

Exactly.  I hate star trails.  I've found that the very maximum I can go is 30 seconds before they become too apparent int he photo.  I usually try to shoot 20 seconds max. The other issue I have with the DA* 16-50 is coma.. have not found a way to combat that yet.  Chromatic aberration on bluish stars can also be an issue.

I especially like the lighting, how you lit the interior yourself, and how useful tp is in the field

Without the interior lighting this would have been a pretty boring shot.. and yes, TP comes in handy on a number of levels when out in the middle of nowhere.

The ability to 'see' the shot is more important than the gear used to capture it.
