Thanks for posting your photo's
What I found was a collar on the McMaster's web site that will do the trick. I do not have your level of machining capability.
And then I will bolt from underneath.

That seems to be a good idea on mounting the CG5 without some fancy machining :-)

There is a page where you make choices as to diameter and clear hole which in turn leaves only limited choices in other areas. Thickens of collar for example.
McMaster is great. I got something else form them that I am going to use on my 12.5" String Truss as part of an update/rebuild of that telescope.
