Do you think you'd like to try a tracking mount? That, with image stacking, would allow you to do longer exposures and lower ISOs (or smaller apertures) for a less noisy result.
Can't see how that would work. The camera needs to be fixed or the landscape foreground will move. Longer exposures, including exposure stacking would give star trails, which would ruin this lovely photo.
A great shot, well composed with the foreground. For my personal taste, I would reduce the exposure a little. I use a Samyang 14/2.8 on my 5DII wide open for 30sec at ISO 3200 for Milky Way photos.
I was thinking of the milky way as the subject and willing to sacrifice the landscape in the foreground... it would get blurred away.
Sorry for the confusion... tell you what let's compromise, the OP could do a timelapse
