Found the ACTUAL datasheet

So I found the actual manufacturer datasheet for this guy: Comment RobotShop: Thank you for the link, we updated the product description.

Trial and error but does work

It would be nice to have a real data sheet for this. It basically says it runs on 5v but nothing about it's resistance characteristics (min/max), polarity, light frequency it's sensative to etc. Had to play to figure it out and still not 100% sure. Is there a real part number somewhere and a real datasheet?

Working - Minimal Datasheet

Works well enough but not much of a datasheet to help with getting a clear analog value
