Alternative fingering

I expect there is a way of using harmonics from a lower note but why do you need it, using the high D palm key is really easy; although I will admit that moving rapidly between high D and C and back again makes for a bit of a lumpy transition.

Many times I have students tha hold their left wrist too high while playing. Their thumb on the octave key is almost horizontal. If they bring their wrist down their thumb is more at an angle going up to the octave key. This also brings your palm closer to the palm keys. I'm not saying this is your situation as I can't see you but many people do this. Look at your left hand on the sax and see if this could help. If not , it could be your sax and palm key risers might help.
 
C to D Trill

or keep your finger on the C key and use either the D or Eb palm key (check with a tuner to see which is best) because during a trill it goes to fast to worry about too much. Also agree with Steve regarding the movement of the left hand. Use the thumb block as a pivot point and the movement is a lot smaller.
