Have you looked into potential local contributors to poor ground level seeing? If you're able to setup the telescope on a deck or elevated platform built on grass/soil as opposed to concrete/asphalt, and able to aim over vegetation or water as opposed to buildings, you can at least partially mitigate factors that can compromise local seeing.

Hi Bill

Thanks very much for your message.

Interestingly, because I cannot drive, I have ambitions (once I am well enough experienced with shooting from my garden) to trolley my set up to a hill a short walk away from my house. This may very well help once I do this, so I'll look into what might contribute to my poor seeing conditions right here in my garden. I didn't realise that it could reach this level of locality.
