They simply look like they are not in focus.

Here's a suggestion: put the camera in Auto mode and take a photo of your scene. Look at what setting the camera uses based on its assessment, and then duplicate those settings in manual mode.

For focus, use live view to see when things are in focus.

Yup, just out of focus. If your subject was the lights, you could have been at infinity on the lens. Also, if that's the moon above, 15 seconds will blow that sucker right out, especially at 1600 ISO....It won't be sharp with perfect focus.
