I will soon try this again, without the trees in shot and hoping to get more of a circle, although im not sure exactly where I should be pointing the lens to get a circle ?

Since you're in the Northern Hemisphere, the stars will circle Polaris - the North Star. So, you'll want to make sure the North Star is in the frame and positioned where you want the stars to circle.

If you don't know the night sky, there are smart phone and tablet apps that can help you locate the North Star.
