  1. i like the mount for it to float in the box idea if but it could rattle things loose if u was transporting to different  places. u could make a box  out of exterior grade ply 9mm should not take on moisture and it wont be to heavy and u could add casters on the bottom to help move about and line with foam

  6. the 130p isnot very good for imaging the mount is not the right type of mount for dso imaging but u could get a few shots of the moon with a webcam, the 130p is not great for planets ether not enought focal length.
