K-5 Shake Reduction Problem?

My K-5 seems to have a problem, I don't know if it's something I'm doing wrong or what. Most of the time it is not noticeable, except when I want to make a time lapse video or startrails. When I have shake reduction off, the composition shifts very slightly up or down between frames. The individual pictures are not blurry, so I don't think it's a camera shake issue. My tripod isn't the most sturdy one, but even with no wind at all I have this problem, which never happened with my K-x. So it makes time lapse videos unwatchable unless I find a way to stabilize the video in an editor. I don't even know how to stack startrail pictures since each frame moves just a tiny bit. It's as if the sensor is moving between frames. Does anyone know what the problem is?

Do you have the auto leveling option turned on by any chance?

That might be it. I wasn't aware that setting even existed. Thanks
