Why not? Can't you just orient them in opposite directions? Vertical
motions should add, while tilt accelerations will subtract.
That's what we do when we want to evaluate the magnitude of tilt-rotation
noise on Dave's verticals.
Obviously DC tilts don't necessarily cancel, but I wouldn't expect that to
be the primary problem. Come to think of it, wouldn't you even be able to
cancel steady-state tilts if you adjusted one vertical instrument slightly
off-center in one direction and the opposing one the same amount in the
