This quest is fairly straightforward, as mostly it involves finding items and talking to characters.
The step involving stealing the Magister's research notes is relatively easy—there is no trespassing area, unlike previous quests—it is simply a matter of trying again if the Vestige is seen.
Talk to Arith, and then Magister Gothren, who will send you to Zalkin-Sul Egg Mine. There, talk to Lothnarth, who will warn you about Otheri's guards, the mine's Foremen. Proceed through the mine (be aware that being spotted will increase your bounty, until you have reached the mysterious chamber.
Talk to Lothnarth again, and proceed to be given a choice: he will tell you what he knows, in return for any notes found inside about its creation, or alternatively, you can give him 198 to cut out his silent partner.
Choosing the former option, he will inform you that certain parts were taken by Otheri and placed inside the Dwemer ruins: the Crank, Gear, pistons, and handles.
Inside Mzanchend, fight through the Dwarven Automatons to find the prism tools (and research notes if not bribed).
Head back to Lothnarth, and give him the notes. Wait for him to leave, and place the items to unlock the Dwarven Prism. Keesu will then arrive and inform you that the mine is collapsing. Escape, avoiding the Rockfalls. Note that since the Dwarven Tonal Prism has now been removed, the Kwama are now hostile.
