I have found that most of my decentering questions resolve when I put the camera on a tripod, use MLU and I am very very careful about how I am setup.

I know that I can cause soft left sides when my shutter finger gets sloppy, drives me nuts.

You have described something other than decentring.

My cameras were on a tripod for the station shot, but only for framing purposes.

You really shouldn't need a tripod at 50mm and 1/4000s unless you have been drinking heavily.

Even then I doubt that you could move the camera quickly enough and still get it framed like that. 

BTW I don't drink alcohol.  Well, not full strength, not very often (it's 0.5% soft drink sold in supermarkets here) and not when I shoot.
