     Ken-
    
     Interesting. You are flashing the light on for 1/10 of a second, then off for 
    1/10th of a second. But the human eye sees flicker (in computer monitors, 
    florescent lights, cinema) even at a rate of 60 pulses per second. i.e. some 
    people can readily see a monitor flickering when it refreshes 60x per second.
     So, with your flicker being 6x longer, how is it that they don't look 
    "flickery" to the eye? It is small enough and bright enough that the eye 
    mistakes the flicker for motion, or the "twinkle" of a star, and processes it 
    out?
