Dome Roof: Need help flashing Skylights?

If we have 5 skylights set in a pentagram on a dome-roof, what's the best way to flash in-between them? Moneteray Dome circa 1985. We're re-doing the skylights now. Last roofer used an ice-dam water-shield rubber material with a rough protective texture on top over the flashing between the windows, and regular flashing around the edges and sealed that.

Not sure that was sufficient.

The flashing needs to be made for each lite so each overlaps correctly. No way I could explain in full detail. These have no ice and storm shield, and only place needing caulk was a little dab at the top corners, of the top 2 lites.
