I had a cheap pair of 10x50 bins with same problem and sorted it by removing the ipd scale and tightening the big slot headed screw located underneath the guage 

I was lucky it was an exposed cross head screw holding guage in place and not concealled under a metal sticker (not done this on observation bins so may be diferant)

Dont try this tho till other folks confirm thats how to do it

also it may void warranty depending on age of bins

You could try tightening the retaining nut at the end of the central bar at the objective end of the instrument (behind the  plastic screw off cover). Here's a post of mine from a few years back on Cloudy Nights where I had a similar problem with a 10x50......

      I have the 11x70 model which has preferred Baush and Lomb body. Excellent optics and eye relief.
      Are the 20x100s as good optically, and do they have the same high eye relief?

      I came across some Heliosphere Solana 12x50 binoculars on EBay recently and I'm thinking of adding them to my collection. 
      Has anyone used any 12x50s for stargazing? What we're the views like compared to 10x bins?

      Ok, so i've had my bins since christmas, and since I got a tripod for christmas as well, I want to put my bins on my tripod to make viewing more pleasing.
      I have sort of searched around the internet to find an adapter that fits both min bins and my tripod. Btw, my tripod is called velbon videomate 638.
      I hope that some of you have had the same problem as me, and that you can help me!

      Isn't it nice to have classy, well-behaved visitors? Permit me to introduce (part of) the family Helios Lightquest, which arrived today courtesy of @FLO/The BinocularShop:

      The visiting members are (back to front) 25x100, 20x80, 16x70, 10x50.
      I imagine that what a lot of people will want to know is: "Are these simply re-badged and re-liveried Lunt Magnesiums?" The short answer is, "No, I don't think so but, on a cursory inspection, they do ooze a similar 'premium binocular' class." For any more than that, you'll have to wait until I've put them through their paces.
      However, if there is any aspect of them that you would like covered that I don't usually put in my independent (as distinct from Sky@Night) reviews, please do ask, and I will consider it. Until then, wish me clear dark skies and watch this space...
