How do I turn off rear display on 7D2 while tethered?

I use my 7D2 often for astrophotography.  As soon as I plug the camera into the computer the rear display lights up with an image of a computer.

I'd like to rough focus the camera manually while looking through the OVF but that rear display blows out my night vision.

Can the display be turned off somehow while tethered?
