Problem I see with blends is when scrim just overlapped onto existing and skimmed. A bit tedious, but cut back the existing skim around edges, before scrim. Small patches I’ve sometimes just easifilled and sanded.

You need to get a decent straight edge across.
I've setup those corex £4 sheets at windows to block light and put spot light across to see what is going on.
I've advised to skim the ceiling sometimes to hide repair.

I use 3m aluminium vertical blind track. Help yourself when I asked if I could have one from the 50+ pile. I took one. Should of took 10 as brilliant. When fitting board to patch ceiling I blob them to timbers dot and dab style. Just a few screws to hold while it sets dead level (well a tad up)with exciting ceiling then add more screws.
I also scrape old plaster around edge to recess tape below ceiling level. Nothing should be above existing ceiling level not even mesh tape or there is a bump around patch. I do this with crack repairs. I scrape a grove in ceiling then set tape in. Same principle as tapered edge board and tapes being hidden, but make you own taper. Giving away my secrets.

Personally I think if the sun hits the most perfectly skimmed wall or ceiling it will find some imperfections

Exactly m8. I haven't seen a painter like this he goes mad whith a filler. I think he's got some kind of ocd. It a good thing in a way but ther limit!
