K200D Vertical Banding Issue

Hey guys, I know there are plenty of vertical banding threads out there, but most are pretty old and about the K20d. I was taking some pictures a couple weeks ago and have just now got around to looking at them. They were some star pictures, and in a couple of these photos, there is some strange stuff going on. I do have a grip on my camera and I am not sure if that was the issue. I haven't taken any star pictures since then so I can't tell if it is still occuring. I am kind of just wondering what the heck is going on. Hopefully somebody can fill me in.

Crikey! No clue, sorry, but thanks for posting anyway, because I'll be scanning my images too.

Do you also get them in daylight shots or is it only at night?

Was this along shutter?
TBH. the only way to get to the bottom of this is to reproduce it. Otherwise, there isn't really much to go on.

Yes this was a 30 second exposure. I will try and replicate it tonight. I've seen it in other star photos before, but no daytime photos. I wonder if I can't them because they would probably be so faint in a different photo. Also I will experiment to see if longer shutter speeds make it worse.
