Intervalock for Pentax K-5 IIs

Hi. I have a Pentax K-5 IIs and would like to use it for astrophotography. To control vibration, as well as shutter timing, I am interested in purchasing a intervalock. Has anyone purchased one, and what do you recommend that works with Pentax cameras?

I meant to ask about using a intervalometer.

I do not use an intervalometer, I use a Vello wired remote, but the following is a Vello intervalometer for Pentax along with other brands compatible.

You can find several on Amazon. The one I have is branded "Neewer" but the same exact product is also sold by several different brand names.

The same model that works with some Canon cameras is compatible with your K-5 iis. The Amazon listing should mention Pentax. If it just says Canon stay away; some Canon cameras use a different plug type than Pentax.

Thank you for your help. I have seen some intervalometers for sale on B&H that reference Pentax (and Cannon) and provide the sub mini connection. Will let you know how I make out with the one I purchase.
