Imaging scope on top or side by side?


I am trying to get some equipment going for a school that purchased it in September 2011 and it has not been out of the box yet.

They have a Vixen R200SS, an HEQ5Pro and as a guide scope a Skywatcher ED80. They received a side by side mounting system however the Vixen plate when I put it in and tighten it is only supported by a millimetre when screwed up tight. I figure if I put an aluminium plate on top using the two screws that are used to support the leather handle I could screw the ED80 using the two screws for the tube rings to give me a guide scope that is not adjustable but would allow them to get going.

Any advice????
