Tripod feet


Recommended Posts

I stand my 81 Scope tripod on paving stones in my patio and have noticed sometimes that the imaged stars on piggy back camera are V shaped which I think is due to vibration as there is not so much as a breeze when taking the subs. The question is, if it is vibration is it better to stand the tripod on a softer base such as the advertised tripod feet or is the paving stone better and I must look for another reason for the V shaped stars. Can anyone advise me.

Put the tripod on the grass and the problem will almost certainly go away or be very much reduced.

I set my tipod up so theit straddles a path, the tripod legs sit either side of the path and I stand on the path - stops the grass getting really mucky this time of year!
