Thanks for your input Justin! What ball head are you using with the T-025x? My C10s seems a bit small for the K-1, right?
Well, my name's not Justin, but here goes anyway...

The C10x works fine with smaller lenses, nowadays I use it on my monopod. It has no trouble with the K-1. On the tripod itself I've used the C10x for a while, now I use the K10x, it's a good match size-wise, it's more sturdy than the C10x and not too heavy. I agree with the comments above, it's a superb head.

That Moman Mini tripod looks pretty cool! Probably fits a bit better in a camera bag than what I'm set up with.

Sorry bdery! I must of looked at the wrong pic! Thanks for taking the time to respond. I'll look into the K10x.

I guess at the end of the day it comes down to the intended, and the un-intended, use of the tripod. my little Vanguard Veo 264 CB (the travel tripod I referred to earlier) is a good tool for "normal" use, ticks a lot of boxes. However in the not so normal, particularly long exposure, windy or running water conditions it does not instil a great deal of confidence.
A very recent experience bought this home where I was shooting a sunrise at a beach locally, with the tide going out, had the K1 with 24-70 on the old Manfrotto clunker, at the waters edge. Water lapping up to the tripod feet, gentle little waves barely ankle deep and I moved away to put my camera bag back a bit further when I turned back to see a little rogue wave about knee deep was rolling in....and I am too far back to beat it to the camera / tripod. So I am totally in the hands of the stability of that tripod as the wave rolled through it, the strap hanging off the camera is in the water, my heart in my mouth as I freeze with everything crossed.!!!
All ended well, wave receded, tripod was standing proud and tall, and other than a wet strap no damage done. I would not like to repeat this with the Vanguard, I think I would have tested out Pentax's weather proofing.

The moral of the story....you just never know what your kit may be asked to do, so err on the side of caution if you possibly can.

Hello fellow Pentaxians,
I'm a new K-1 owner looking to do astro with a Samyang 24mm lens.
Does anyone have a solid travel tripod they particularly enjoy?
Something under $250 would be ideal for my budget.
I have a siuri x005, but it seems a little weak for the K-1.
Thanks!

You may want to try KEH Camera. They sell used and if they say the tripod is Excellent, it is probably better than that. Here is a link when I did a search for tripods:
