You're trying to get the shot in a semi-automated mode that's exceeding the shutter speed limit for that mode; you'll have to allocate more ISO/f-stop or move to Manual.

Be aware that with ~20MP you have about five seconds before stars start to notably motion blur.

Interesting! I've just started trying astro with my D750, 20mm f/1.8.

I first tried ISO 100, f/1.8, 30sec, and I'm not seeing much motion blur, if any.

Not challenging, just very new to this.

Loads of light pollution in my backyard; we've got a place in Maine that's quite dark but I thought I'd try some test shots...
