Well done!

Your summary is exemplary, as well. :)

It also helps verify that often, you just can't beat a good set of
empirical data!

As an aside, I was pleased to see that CdS cells are indeed sensitive to
UV, at least to the degree that a UV filter cut 50-75% of the reading
compared to unfiltered tests, leading credence to the notion that the
use of an ultraviolet bandpass filter might let a CdS cell serve as an
inexpensive flame detector or verifier.
