I was wondering if i could mount the head of the CG-5 on this tripod ? Its a older one that came with my c11 and its a real good solid tripod, since i will be doing some wide field imaging with a tmb 80/480 scope with a 450d camera setup. I think that head would hit the legs of this tripod since its spread out wide,,

The CG5 eq mount can be fitted to this tripod if you custom make an adapter plate with a recess of 60 mm diameter and 20 mm deep and the central bolt has to be 10 mm metric screw thread.
