Hello,
I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
There are numerous attachment screws which hold the telescope tube to the fork tines.
You will need to remove all of the attachment screws, then remove the telescope tube from its mount.

Thanks. That was fairly obvious to a hex wrench.You actually need to also unscrew the 4" declination axes external face plates to access the core connection to the tube assembly frame.
