Two things, the 500 rule is less helpful, there are calculators that give you better times for less trailing out there now. I personally use the lonely specks advanced calculator.

Secondly, if you're going to shoot single frames, then I'd rather shoot at a higher iso than lower in camera, because it's going to produce cleaner stars still vs making assumptions. If you're going to stack, shoot at the lowest you feel comfortable with (I did 800 iso on my z7 to stack frames for my latest milky way pano).

And just shoot in color. I think the raws produced will be in color regardless, but you don't get a benefit otherwise.
