I was looking through some photos taken a couple months back and noticed several small colored dots in the images taken with prolonged exposures (red, blue, etc.).

I put the lens cap on and took two exposures. The first was at 1 second @ f2.8 and there were no visible issues at 100% magnification.

The second exposure was at 25 seconds at f2.8 with the same ISO. In this image, at least 5 colored dots are shown on the image and this has been repeated with the same results.

Does anyone know what's going on here and/or have any recommendations?

I purchased the D700 about 6 months ago and would like to get this taken care of but would like to know more about it before sending it in, for example.

Any responses would be appreciated.
