The light stars are caused by using a long exposure with a small aperture.
The number of aperture blades plays a part too as an even number of blades will give the same number of star points but an odd number of blades will give twice the number of star points.

Awesome. Thanks for the input. I will have to try a few more shots to see if I can reduce this.

It's all personal preference - I really like the effect they can add to a photo and actually try to create them in certain scenes.
In your piccy above, I might be tempted to reduce exposure in certain areas so the star bursts are not as prominent - but overall I like the image. I'd clone out the shadow of the tripod too.
