I have tried this a few times, and might again this weekend. There is not really anything camera specific.

Tripod
Remote release
wide-ish angle lens

Focus can be a bit tricky. Using f/4 to f/5.6 to get a reasonable DOF for error purposes, I would focus manually on the stars if auto-focus does not work.

Set the camera in manual exposure mode for say, 20 second shutter speed and f/4. Adjust the ISO to get the exposure right.

I would recommend turning off any long-exposure noise reduction.

(When I get home I will check the settings of my previous outing.)
