Less directly Sealion related than some but close enough that I'll put it here, based on OTL technological progress at what stage would AShM's etc. gotten advanced enough that control of the channel would have become functionally an aerial battle and maintaining even local, temporary naval superiority (such as that needed to disrupt an attempted invasion) without significant aerial support would be impossible?

Is that the case even today?
1955. Yes.
 
1955. Yes.
So succesfull sealion would require Breakthrought decade ahead. Germany to win on Eastern front by 1943. Pushing Invasion Overlord back and then building program and all that topped by Technological breakthrought decade ahead. Impropable, but not ASB. Which means we might have non ASB sealion.

Provided that Russia reaches the Channel in 1945 and then spends 10 years on rocket and cruise missile research... correct. There could be a Морской лев. ("Operation" Sea Lion.) It just won't be the Germans doing it. Now aren't you glad for OVERLORD? Or as the Russians put it, "Большое разочарование Сталина". ("Stalin's Great Disappointment.").
