I own a D80 myself. Shooting at night with a camera like D80 can be a challenge. Here are your options:
- Camera basics and shooting technique: Things like holding the camera steady, using a tripod etc. go a long way in taking care of things like blur.
- Upgrade to a lens that allows a wider aperture.
- Upgrade your camera to D7100 or better (or better yet, go fullframe).
- Shoot with a negative exposure compensation (anything between 0 to -2 is ok). Later you can recover the exposure during post-processing I recommend Nikon capture NX2 for this.
Hope this helps.
