Okay... I'll stick my neck out with an opinion.

I'd choose the middle one.  In general, my personal feeling is to avoid 
timing more than ten flashes [or more than 90 degrees of sky] to minimize 
the synodic effect.

The only exception I can think of is if the 5 or 18 flash periods bear some 
relationship to the DRA analysis that make those observations a "better
fit."  If that makes sense.

Waiting for the axe to fall,

Jim
