Gently Does It Joel!!

Yeah .. same here . . I gently peeled it away from one corner. You need to get to the point where the small rubber is at a corner and just gentle "peel" it off one corner. The rest should just fall away. Make sure you have the eyepiece of the cammie in the locked horizontal position. I've made it happen, but it did worry me when I did it. Be careful . .

Grazie
