I wondered if you can use a dual saddle with a C8 on one side and an AT-90edt with an C80ed stacked? Will the mount hold it?

I'll venture a guess and say yes.

As long is the mount doesn't have to move....

Yes, there is a dual setting in the handcontrol. I believe it is in mount setup or utilities.

Yes. Here is my Edge 800 and Tak TSA-120 on an ADM dual saddle on one of my AVX's:

Wow! how much does that setup weigh. That is a lot of equipment?

I'd guess it weighs 31 lbs. How close am I? (Counting the EP's and finder).

I don't think anyone would seriously attempt AP with that much weight though.
