Pardon the pun, but is your understanding of good seeing transparent?
See https://www.skyandtelescope.com/astrono ... ifference/ to
know the difference between the two.

To get the best seeing on Earth, buy the highest resolution telescope you can afford and set it up in the select location in Antarctica discussed in this link:

https://www.space.com/best-night-sky-te ... ctica.html

Then find a way to embellish your scope electronically so you can see its images from a computer screen thousands of miles away in a warm location. If you insist on looking directly through eyepieces on your telescope to get immersion highs, don't forget to dress in layers -- with a rescue team nearby in case this doesn't work out.

Thanks to Greg Barr for directing me to this webpage.
