This looks like it will come off...didn't need to...
The bolts under the fork, opposite the dec, they DO need to be loose
and then these screws DO need to come out
Screw on vixen dovetail from ADM and mount on new to me EQ6...easy peasy!

28 lbs...yeah handles would be nice but I will only move mine a few times a year. What goes on the pier tends to stay on the pier.
Congrats on the "New" set up!!. I'll be doing this one day also. How heavy do you think the OTA alone is? I think I may also add some handles for safety like Astronewb did here: Carrying Handles for SCTs and RCs
Now I'm kinda worried it won't fit in my little slide away shed, may have to set up a custom park position.

Custom park should be easy with EQMOD I hope.

These screws WILL go right into your mirror if you put them back in!
Luckily I didn't do any damage, but it could have been bad.

Just deforked my old 2080, remounted on Celestron Advanced VX Mount. A new lease of life!
