I have done almost that, with my 5" refractor on my CGEM, a CCD camera with off-axis guider at the rear, and my DSLR piggybacked on the otherwise empty dovetail bar up near the front. I used ImagesPlus to control the CCD camera, BackyardEOS to control the DSLR, and PHD for guiding. Good thing I have a lot of USB ports!
I was worried about mirror flip on the DSLR messing an ongoing exposure with the CCD camera, but did not have a problem.
