Nikon D800E wont take sharp astrophotos on manual focus


I been using D700 for years and taking awesome shots of milkyway just manual and leave it on Infinity.

I bought refurb D800e and cant take decent shots from stars with same lenses and same setting.

I thought its because too much exposure but even reducing it to 20 Sec on 14-24 still blury stars.


iso= 1000-2400

15-30 sec

Even focused on moon and changed it manual didn't help...

Is there any trick or my camera needs expert check by Nikon?

Please share.
