    Would I be correct in assuming that   generally   the higher the orbit
    is, the more it is affected by lunisolar perturbances (lower effect of
    Erarth's gravimetric field, increased effect of the Moon's gravity, which
    is lower than the Earth's gravity, so then the Sun gets a piece of the
    action) ?
