Difficult to tell from where you took the measurements but 8 looks good to me.

You need to measure the output voltage while charging a battery to find the sweet spot. The highest output voltage is where it is at.

The idea of a bulb in the trigger circuit is to make use of the power that is triggering the transistor. A resistor wastes power as heat which is not much use. A bulb is a resistor that converts the waste into light, at least its a little useful.
