My first humble attempt at star trails

So I have a few things to learn. Like, make use of an interesting foreground. I painted the trees with a flashlight, but clearly it wasn't enough. Second, do I have to hand-paint each frame (there's 113 of them!) if I want to get rid of this noise?

 

This is a 1-hour timelapse with 113 30-second exposures, all composited with StarTrails and processed in Adobe Lightroom.

 

Any advice or thoughts?
