Wide / Ultra Wide angle lens for my K-5

I'm looking to buy the widest angle lens possible for my K-5 for my astrophotography purposes. The lowest I have is the Tamron 17-50. I need wider, please help- Thank you!

Update: Now looking for the Sigma 8-16mm. Please help.

I use a 6.5mm Opteka Fisheye and 10-24mm Tamron on my K-7, K-01 etc. Sigma has the 8-16mm that is the widest APS-C zoom.

Thank you! I was looking at the Sigma 10-20 and had no idea about the 8-16. Now I'd like to find one used for a little cheaper. I have the Pentax 10-17 fisheye but I want something with less distortion So I get capture a better looking landscape with the stars behind it all. Can't wait! Thanks again!

Purchased the Sigma 8-16 on ebay for $510. Saved a little. Thank you for the help.
