Just had a thought about a possible alternative option.

You could encase the scope and the mount head in a plastic bag, attach the dehumidifier to one end and pump air through the bag with an outlet up the top. Means the unit can be mobile in the obs for no plumbing (or a hose to take water outside)and it will recycle slightly less humid air as well from within the obs.

It won't do the whole obs for PC's and other equipment etc, but a small unit would keep the bag fairly well regulated humidity wise.

Fridge shipping bags are huge and you might find them around the recycling centres or try white good stores who deliver. Or if your good with wood, a simple hinged T box. Might be possible to enclose the loop with just a tiny air hole for pressure, that might reduce the need to empty the water chamber as often.
