Zan, I have added your name to the fusioneers listing. Good going.

Hooray for Zan!

I think the very last round was critical.
As others have said, your previous-round bubble pictures didn't match the familiar signature of neutron doses.

I bet they show us the signature of detector gel getting too hot in a small region. Fortunately it was reversible, or you had a spare detector. The scientist in me would try to reproduce that effect, by local heating in the absence of a fusor. That would be analogous with Roentgen or Becquerel steering off track to investigate unexpected glows or photo-plate fogging.

Thank you everyone for everything. I have been looking forward to this for a long time. But this is nowhere near the end of my fusor endeavors. I'm looking forward to more progress in the future (chamber upgrades, grid upgrades, new gauge, calibrate my 3He tube, and ion guns!). I'm thinking about taking a break now though, and maybe trying to build a Van de Graaf just for fun.

PS: And also, my bubbles have grown, and some smaller ones are now visible, so my new count is 11.

Thanks again,

Zan
