Currently own a pair of Yongnuo YN622C triggers (transceivers). Want to get einstein e640 with the cyber commander and transceiver. The YN622C has passthrough hot shoe to mount a flash on top. is it possible to mount the cyber commander on top of the YN622C so that I can fire both a speedlight and the einstein together?

It should work. The CC doesnt need ETTL so it should be fine up there. That said, a lot of users prefer to get a second Cybersync transmitter to use in the shoe and use the CC in your pocket. The remote function of the CC to control the power is all done prior to pushing the button so it can be used apart from the sync process.

I just did a quick test and yes, it works! I shot at 1/125s (with a 5D) and you'll notice the band at the bottom, so this really isn't an ideal setup if you need a faster sync speed. And the CC sits very loosely on the YN622C. I wouldn't leave it on there.

If you want to trigger your Einsteins, but a CST in addition to the CC. Use the CST as the trigger and keep the CC on hand to make adjustments. (Oops, just noticed that gonzogolf mentioned that already!)

It's in TOYUG P.10 - David Ward's technique with Cybersync.

thanks. I've done some thinking and I suppose one can also fire the einstein using optical slave triggered by the speedlight

My CC fits loose too, so I sometimes fire the Einstein with a YN622 and keep the CC in my pocket. (Which I'll do even when not using any speedlights.) Yeah... I know. I'll get a CST someday.
