I feel sheepish for asking ....but
I'm in the market to buy a new tripod for my robotic TS. (old Trimble 5603) I'm considering the Sitepro Salamander which is designed for robotics. http://www.dwsitepro.com/product-details/salamander-robotic-tripod/
However, I've never own a tripod that has a circular head/face. (Here's the sheepish part) It'll work with standard Wild GDF22 tribrachs, right?
Thanks in advance,
Shirley it will.
Why would you think it wouldn't?
I'm pretty sure I've set up Leica gear before, on circle topped tripods, I just never gave it much thought...
The only thing is the center hole of the tripod head is quite large, and the Leica tribrachs don't have the broadest bases. Together, that may limit how much you can slide the tribrach around to fine center. But I'd expect no real problems.
Been using SitePro fiberglass dual lock tripod over 10yrs and it is sturdy and in great shape.
The Salamander is the upgrade to what I have and if I needed another would have already ordered.
