    I was not implying that we must take lots of measurements, just use ALL the 
    measurements we HAVE made.
    In fact, the graphic method means that you don't need to count the flashes, 
    nor remember/check which flashes you missed.
    In most cases you will be able to skip 2/3 or more of the button presses and 
    still get accurate results, provided that you have a few single intervals, 
    and avoid systematic bias by taking every third (,fourth,...) flash or 
    similarly.

    I'm sure there is plenty of analysis that could be done, including Bjorn's 
    suggestions I did not quote, but I don't choose to take the time to hit the 
    stopwatch button on every flash for such a regular flasher. My watch has 199 
    timings available, so, using that night as an example, I would've maxed out 
    at 3 objects seen (I was actually able to enjoy over 30).
