first hire someone who has done this or is at least a qualified rigger.

second it can be done a couple ways depending on budget and fixtures used.

I like the two ten foot peices of 12x12 box truss run through the basket and secured. you can then rig the light and the 8x via speed rail or rope/cable underneath. use the base of the condor to operate the lift, tilt, and pan.

sorry I dont have photo's. I just realized I dont even have any good photo's of myself at work.

Well, it would involve a bunch of pipe and a lot of clamps of various kinds. If it's a big enough project to have a cube hanging off a condor, then it follows that there's a grip department on the project, and they should be able to work out the details. If not, then get a different grip dep't.
