Does anyone know of a solution for mounting a Celestron CGE EQ head to an Astro-Physics portable pier?

I'm noodling a 6" f/15 D&G, and suspect that the CGE saddle height with the stock tripod will be too low. I am not a fan of pier extensions on tripods, and prefer a traditional pier like the A-P unit.

Thanks!
