    For those interested,
    The telescopic CCD image (61-cm Cassegrain of SSON) showing the flashing 
    behaviour of Vortex 1r as captured on January 9th is here:
    I re-analyzed the image and the sharp main flashes best fit a regular period 
    near 2.96s, with secondary maxima some 0.44-0.50s before and after the main maxima.
