I think you're falling into a trap that many have visited before you. The 'interval' is not the time between the end of one exposure and the start of the next, but the time between the camera triggering one exposure and attempting to trigger the next. Since you have 30s exposures and 20s interval, the camera tries to trigger the 2nd exposure before the first completes. You'll only get, at best, half of your intended exposures. I suspect you may have Long Exposure NR on, which takes the time for each exposure out to a bit more than 60s, so you get just 25% of the programmed shots.

Hope this helps
Chris
