    Essentially, but would prefer a graph as opposed to the figure 8.

    Would like one year in 12 hour increments along the x axis and plus/minus 17
    minutes with 6 second resolution on the y axis.  Basically 730 x 340
    resolution.  That may be outside the range of Excel to chart, but could
    easily be broken into chunks Excel could chew on and the resulting charts
    assembled graphically.
    Higher resolution would be nice, but perhaps unreadable on a manageable
    paper size, could live with 365 x 136 resolution.
