Why would the exposure be different at 200mm?

When you are photographing stars and such there is a general rule that you can have an exposure equal to 500 divided by the (FF equivalent) focal length before the movement of the star becomes a star trail. So for 24mm you get 500/24 = ~20 seconds and 500/200 = ~2.5 seconds.
