Does anyone know if the Super/Great Polaris mount head fit the top of this Explore Scientific Tripod?

https://www.cloudyni...entific-tripod/


I measure the part that fits into the "cup" at 60mm. The seller measures the cup diameter on his tripod at 58mm.

But... measurement schmezerschmidt. It looks like it should fit, and I want it to fit! One of out measurements could be off?

Thanks

Looks like the same tripod I have for a CG-4 GEM. I've sold the head but kept the tripod. The cup diameter measures with calipers at 2.350" or 59.69mm.
