But to answer your question: I don't think that building a pier will give much improvement to the stability of your setup.
Quote:But as I believe the OP has his tripod on the decking, simply isolating the tripod or the new pier from the decking should at least make a noticeable difference. Isolating the setup from the decking would be the first variable I would look at.
