I'm thinking that a cylindrical package could work, but I can't find any that are less than 8.8mm long, and I only have a clearance of ~ 7mm. Anyone know of a 16 mhz cylinder crystal that's shorter, or know if it would be a problem to mount it at 45 degrees, or laid flat above its capacitors? I've never used one before, but what I've read suggests that they're more sensitive about their environment than other components.
