he's WAY above Terrax, Absorbing Man, etc, who are at least in Superman's ballpark. The Ultron showing throws SOME question as to Sentry's full power level, but he's been consistently above herald and near herald levellers, ESPECIALLY considering showings by the Void as well.

You would need to be skyfather level to do that to a herald. The Terrax showing is one of the worst bits of writing I've ever seen. Thanos was able to down Surfer in seven punches. Sentry was able to best Terrax in 2. So that would put Sentry above Thanos who is low skyfather level. Thus Sentry is a solid Skyfather... cough cough.
