P.S. This is just the CG-5 mount+head the OTA I keep inside of course

I've done similar with mine (minus the extra auxiliary electronics. I used a large upside down garbage can tied down with bungee cords. I covered the mount inside that with a cover, but that was it. Never had an issue. Kept my OTA's inside as well.

to seal the best part ise you can reuse just be removing the silicone and the end cap.

Now assuming I place this contraption under the Cg5 tripod, would it be a good or bad idea to leave the wires (nexstar remote, st4 autoguider, power) connected to the mount head or should I keep the wires in the box and just connect when I bring the OTA outside?
