Hi Dick

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings

To get pin-point stars with that lens, your shutter speed should be around 10 seconds maximum. Correct exposure at such a short shutter speed and f2.2 would require an ISO close to 9 000.

Thus really your only bet is to do star trails. Try an hour at f5.6 and ISO800 or half an hour at f4.0?
