within the SHIFT.LST file, which column is the RA and which is the DEC?

That would depend how you've mounted your camera.
Mine has North at the top, in which case the first column (X-axis) is RA and the second (Y-axis) is Declination.
But if your camera isn't lined up with your mount axes, then you'll see a "vector sum" of the errors from both axes in each column, which would be quite tricky to interpret!
