Good Wireless (Preferred) or Wired Intervalometers for Pentax KP

Hi everyone.

I recently got into astrophotography, and just a couple weeks ago, I got myself a small star tracker, the skyguider pro. This lets me take multiple minutes-long exposures. For now, Iím using the basic Pentax 3.5mm shutter cable. However, Iíd like an external intervalometer that I could use to take multiple minutes-long exposures for stacking exposure, preferably wireless so I can sit in my car on cold nights, etc. Does anyone know or use any good wireless intervalometers that donít break the bank?

I just posted a program that can do this:
Introducing Pentax Wi-Fi Tether by PentaxForums.com - PentaxForums.com

You'd be able to control the camera from a laptop and get it to automatically shoot a series of photos.

If you put the camera in B mode and enable the timer feature, this unlocks exposures up to 20 minutes.

This is really cool, looking forward to future updates. But a dedicated intervalometer device would be great for when I canít bring a computer with me or when my camera battery is too low for WiFi.
