It shows a temperature somewhere in between the ambient and the OCXO case temperature. Some have mounted speed controlled fans to keep the TBolt case at a constant temperature.

Ah, so then it's probably fine. Thanks, the other posts which followed

... Now then. Suppose I'll likely return my efforts to finding a time
constant that makes sense for my particular tbolt / usage needs.
