Unwanted movement when focussing

My Apex scope which I bought secondhand a few years ago is an improvement on my previous scope, but it has an issue which I can't seem to resolve.

I just wish sometimes I didn't get circular images You need to use a longer focal lens. What camera and lens do you use?
