I looked up your tripod and it cost $121 at Walmart. No wonder you get camera shake when you are using it! You need to get a much better quality tripod if you are going to be using it in the conditions you are describing.  You probably do not need a video tripod.  Just get a high quality tripod like a RRS and Gitzo and then get a RRS ball head for it.  You will pay over $1000 but this is a good investment as you will then have a tripod and ball head for life.  Remember that most serious photographers buy/discard one or two cheap tripods before deciding to spend the money on a tripod they can use forever.  Oh yes, and be sure to get a tripod that is tall enough that you will not have to bend over to look through it with out extending the center column.
