Previously I have used backyard Nikon with no problems, the time between one frame and another was only a matter of seconds. However, lately it has been taking extremely long to start the next image, about two minutes. I am using a Nikon d5300 with 120s subs at 800 iso. I tried replacing the memory card in the camera, with no luck. Anyone else experience this? And if so how did you solve it?

You have your in-camera setting for long exposure noise reduction turned on.  Turn it off.  Basically, with this turned on, your camera takes an equal length dark exposure after each picture and subtract this from your light frame in-camera.  It's a waste of time, your are better off taking dark frames afterwards (and build a dark library) rather than using the in-camera feature that does it for every single frame.
