I reckon guiding (you did guide, yes??), if it were collimation or camera alignment it would likely be worse one side than the other.
Guiding, yes, but at a FL of 3550, guiding is going to be delicate at best. My Guidescope is a 100mm Ed with a FL of 600 so it's not too shabby. But the seeing was only mediocre so I had PHD doing 3 second shots. Maybe I should have pushed it a bit harder. Who knows? It's just so frustrating to have so little clear sky to allow you to experiment and tweak these settings.

But I know I'm whingeing to the converted.
