I also wanted to put the tripod on a concrete pad. Would it be advisable to put it on a circular (first thought), square, or even a triangular pad? A square pad would be undersized compared to a circular pad, so for a given volume, a circular pad would be shallower?
So, if you started with a “clean slate” (hole in the ground), would you be aiming for a round pad 4” wider than the required diameter - to give the widest support but also to avoid standing on it to minimise vibration transmission? I was aiming for about 5-6” of concrete and/or gravel/sand.
Do you put concrete on the ground (sandy soil), on a layer of sand over gravel? With a membrane?
