Here's a few tips for capturing those brilliant starbursts...

Charge your batteries
Format your memory cards
Use a tripod
Pick a spot to see the whole display

Use manual mode
Auto white balance should be fine or you can try the flash or daylight/bright sun setting
No flash
ISO of 100 or 200 will reduce noise in the image
Aperture of f8 - f16; the larger thenumber the fewer focus issues
Shutter speed 1/30 to 4 seconds (depends on the above 2 settings as they work in harmony)
You'll need to VERY GENTLY depress the shutter without shaking the camera. If your camera can WiFi to your device you can remote-depress the shutter. Or you can use a cable release.
Vibration reduction off (not good for tripod use)
Use the first few shots to set your focus

The EXIF data for the above image: 24mm lens, f4, ISO 400, 1/20 exposure, handheld
