    Hello all,
    Over the years I've done observations of EGP (aka Ajasai and 1986-061 A)
    using a small bino (7x35).
    The flashes are good visible, but too fast after each other to measure them 
    But the flashes are in a generally fied pattern of FFF-F; that is after 
    three flashes
    one is missing. So I timed the first flash after the missing one.
    Then I get a period of 1.8-2.1 sec.
    It varies but is consistent when observing two cosecutive passes.
    EGP has the habit to suddenly change its flash behavior to a series of very 
    fast flashes
    estimated at less than 0.1 sec. To fast to count.
    It is indeed a nice sat to observe.
