Something in my imaging train is out of whack. Outside of focus i get trailed stars on the top half of the image..

Im using a AT10RC btw... 

The scope sits on a pier in an observatory 100% of the time. So i have no idea whats up.....

All ive got now is a Cheshire eyepiece. Is it possible to recollimate using just that???

Well it appears the secondary was just a hair out. Used my cheshire and everything is peachy again.
