Tripod and head for Swaro ATX85 and digiscoping

I have a Manfrotto 290+befree fluid head. It seems to works fine using with my Swaro ATX85 but I have a problem when trying to digiscope. The head couldn't lock the scope when I try to look up to a bird on a tall tree and I think it is wobbling when taking a picture.

I'm looking for a new tripod and head which might be Manfrotto 190xpro3/190cxpro3+MVH500Ah. I know these gears work very well for birding but I couldn't find info about using them for digiscoping. Is a carbon fiber tripod more stable than the aluminium significantly?

I use ATX85+TLS APO23+Olympus omd em10, 6 ft tall.

Your comments will be highly appreciated.
