Terriffic image mate, love the contrast and the smooth tones. I took my first star trail shot with similar setting to you and had a few watchers warnme of sensor heating and damge. read the coments here [link]
I'm not sure if its an issue... maybe more in australia than the matterhorn..we have 42.3 degrees C outside right now!

Haven't had any problem and I've tried this sort of short quite a few times now.
But not at 42 degC thought !!! :D

Amazing image Samuel.
How looks the noise at 100% crop at iso800 on that MKIII considering the 30min exposure?

Looks quite impressive actually. Once opened in CameraRaw the smoothness of the sky and the sharpness of the details is quite astonishing.

awesome, great work. I think if i put my camera on 800 iso for half an hour I'd start to get big hot spots burning into the image
