Hi Andy welcome to the forum. There are a lot of people on here who can help with your query.

I can’t comment on the camera settings as it is a while since I used my DSLR for astro but free stacking software is available. One for Windows is Deep Sky Stacker http://deepskystacker.free.fr/english/index.html

Easy to use and great for a newcomer.

Noise is normally tackled in the processing side rather than within the camera itself. I use PixInsight to produce my images and there are plugins for it to reduce noise.

There is a module you can buy called Topaz DenoiseAI https://www.topazlabs.com/denoise-ai which works great standalone or within Photoshop and/or Affinity Photo.

I haven’t done DSLR imaging for many years, but l was told to take 300secs @ 800 ISO.  
take as many as possible - several hour’s worth. 
Do not turn on noise reduction in the camera as each image will take twice as long.  
 

I have a “How to image with a DSLR” page on my website which l wrote in 2013 with a few tweaks since then.   Many people have found it useful and l will post a link up.  
 

My reservation is your mount as ideally you need to guide, though might be less bothersome in wide-field images.  You may need shorter exposures if you can’t guide.  
 

Getting noise free images with an uncooled camera is  pretty impossible.
