I'm sorry to hear about your back issues. I had surgery on my back this past fall (L2-3 and L3-4) and was out of action for a couple months.
I use several chairs, depending on what scope I'm using and what I plan to observe.
My main chair is the Starbound. Infinite adjustment and it has never slipped on me once in the five years I have owned it. I am on my fifth set of rubber feet and I hope this chair lasts as long as I do.
However, right after my operation, I wanted something with a taller back. It wasn't so much that I needed it all the time, but I wanted something to lean back against when I took my breaks. So I odered a Catsperch and it also works well. It doesn't have the infinite adjustment like the Starbound, but the notches are close enough that I've never had to worry about it. The Catsperch is a little heavier and quite a bit taller than the Starbound, so keep that in mind if you are loading things into a car.
I hope your back feels better soon!

also if my back is really bad, I just observe with my 4 wheeled walker that has a seat.
