Do you know of the CG4 and CG5 have the same top? I had a SkyTee 2 on a CG5 tripod.

Here is a picture of the top of the CG5 tripod. It is right at 5" across and has an alignment pin over the north leg. For the SkyTee 2 I had, this pin needed to be removed. The threaded rod that holds the accessory tray attached the mount to the tripod. Not sure about the diameter/treads of this rod.
The way I remember the SkyTee 2 was that the base was about 3" in diameter and it sat on the top where the paint is worn. Not the best photo - sorry for that.
If the CG4 tripod won't work, you may be able to find a used GC5 tripod. The SkyTee 2 I had was very stable on this tripod. I used it with a C8 and a 10" Newt. The Newt was pushing it a bit but I did love the mount.
