That is what I would use if I wanted to do this once and be done with it. I would certainly not recommend buying a Series 2 for this but since you already own it I suspect you will learn a lot just by mounting it and taking some practice shots at the worst case 200mm.

Even if you are prepared to buy the 13 lb monster, unless you are in a hurry, trying the Series 2 will open your eyes to the issues we've discussed and may help you make a better decision or at least a more confident decision on a final tripod solution.

Good to hear that it uses a 3/8" thread with a reducer bushing.
