collimation (?)

I am experiencing a plume of light on stars and planets in my 12.5 inch F/4. It appears as a tail on stars and a blob of light on planets. On either object it is only in one portion of the image and not a uniform halo surrounding the object. Collimation problem? If so, a suggested cure, i.e. secondary or primary adjustment (both??).
