Have you tried altering the altitude in Stellarium to see the effect? Seems to make very little, if any, difference to mine whereas lat/long alterations are obvious.

Although I know roughly what the altitude at St. Catharines is, I don't see why 250 ft. should make any difference in a universe with a radius of 16,000,000,000 LY.

Altitude also makes a big difference in the amount of air you look through and thus seeing. Don't see a lot of big scopes at sea level, eh?
