Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
The camera is performing noise reduction. To avoid this, make sure the ISO is set to 800 or less and Noise Reduction is turned off in the Shooting menu.
See "Noise Reduction" in the manual (page 108 in my copy).

Testimonial: "My ISO was set to 800 and then bumped to 200. I was shooting star trails and had the same problem with the 30 min exposure. I just looked on my camera and my noise reduction is set to ON! I will turn it off and see how that works. Thank you so very much! :-)"
Your camera has to process all that info it collected over the last 30 seconds. Unlike film your camera has to write all the info to your memory card...you could possibly speed this up a LITTLE BIT by buying a faster rated memory card. Worth a shot but of course the faster the card is rated the higher the price tag!! Good luck!
