If you are following the focusing procedure as described in your Steiner manual, the problem could be mis-collimation. In this case, the prisms are out of alignment, so they are basically not pointing forward to the same spot. In severe cases, this can cause double images, but often it just shows up as you describe. I would contact Steiner at (800) 257-7742
