Need Help With B&L Discoverer Porro 10x50

I was hoping someone might assist me in snugging down the ocular arms on a Bausch and Lomb Discoverer 10x50 Porro binocular. Before making this simple adjustment, I wanted to confirm that the embossed decorative cap between the oculars unscrews (as opposed to being pried off like a bottle cap). Has anyone ever removed that cap from either a Discoverer Porro, or even a Zephyr? Thank you for your assistance.

Problem solved. It unscrews, but requires a bit more torque than I expected. The screw head is covered by the decorative emblem, so I resorted to unscrewing the entire cap/emblem/screw assembly.

The problem was MORE than solved; a lesson was learned. But remember, as you have occasion to tell others, only about 80% will get it. The most adamant will twist your words and blame you for their lack of understanding. Welcome to the club.
