I'd like to see how can I setup a fs-60 and a mewlon 180 on the same mount...

I have a Takahashi EM-200.  The FS-60 has the Takahashi clamshell and the mewlon 180 has a dovetail that has the two hole adapter that goes into the mount.  I was looking at the Takahashi medium accessory mounting plate but I don't see how that will work.  I could get rings for the fs-60 and put the mewlon on top but i wouldn't feel comfortable doing that.  Any ideas?

I certainly can't picture what that accessory mount plate does without seeing it installed on a mount.  It might be best to go to an aftermarket saddle and side-by-side arrangement.  That way you could continue using the clam shell for the FS-60.
