I was thinking it might make a nice guidescope on a C9.25 since is quite light and short for a 5 inch scope.

A C5 is what I use to do most of my observing, and you're thinking of putting it on top of something as a guidescope!!!
Suddenly, I feel very small.

The weight can be handled pretty easily with a good counterweight assembly located underneath. The drive gears/system in the GPS series is pretty robust and can handle quite a big load.
