Tight apertures cause the stars, if you open up your aperture to say, f/1.8, than they will just be white blobs.

I'm wondering if the lights behind you are affecting the shot... only reason I mention it - I had a night shot that a light off to my right side, rear created a nasty flare... a lot of P&P took care of it... but... it was a light behind me causing it... I was pretty close to the light though... just a thought...
