D850 + Tamron 15-30mm . Astrophotography ?

Hi All,

I am planing on going out to the country for taking pictures of stars.. I got the D850 +Tamron 15-30 combo. I wonder if anyone has tried the D850 for astrophotography and maybe is willing to recommend the settings.  My initial plan is 30 sec exposure at 2.8 and ISO 3200.

I have seen many threads saying the great capability of the high ISO of this camera.. While I acknowledge it is pretty good, I have tried 6400 and it does show some noise.

Also, I am not sure about the Noise reduction. Should this be on or off? (by setting this on, would this "erase" some stars?)

Thanks in advance for any feedback/advise.
