Default Leica Zoom eyepiece

I digiscope with the Leica APO 77 and the Eagle Eye adapter. Most of the time I use the 32 wide eyepiece but when I use the 20-60 zoom there is a tendency for the zoom mechanism to rotate because of the weight of the camera etc. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution.

Thanks, Robin

Eagle Eye usually supply an elastic rubber fitting with the adaptor that you can put on the zoom to stop the rotation. It's not great but it works. I must admit I've tried using the zoom eyepiece but because of this problem (and the vignetting) I've gone back to the 32WW.
