While warming up to prepare to watch Fengyun 1C debris.. I lost myself and ended up bagging this fast flasher 86-019AG in 75mm f1.4 using watec-902H2Ultimate. PPAS database indicate s a single entry (reproduced below).

The actual flash patterns look complex.. a quick series of twinking to max brightness
and dim down.. ( click the image to have a close look). Video on archive.
