  • Unscrew the two screws around the silver disk-like part indicated by the red circles on the image and then remove them.

  • Next gently remove the black strap indicated by the yellow circle on the image.

  • The black strap can easily snap back on for reassembly.

There is one more step in case you need the whole objective (lens) taken out. 3 screws below the CCD hold the lens unit in place, then the lens unit can be taken out backwards.

To do this, in addition to step 1, all bottom screws, including the tripod mother has to be removed as the third scre of the lens unit is hidden there.
