Now if you were making a watch list for the tenchi OVA related series in in universe chronological order where are Spaceship Aggaruter and Photon before or after Dual?

Photon's time frame is unknown.
I like Eff's theory (I forget if he's said it came from elsewhere) that Photon's Earth/Sandy Planet/Geminar created the Earth of Dual when the Anti-Aho Generator was running and seemingly made some parallel worlds before Photon turned it off.
So that would place it as just about the earliest thing in the chronology. Then Tokimi goes all wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey with that Universe- putting it on fast-forward or slow-time according to her whims.

Agga Ruter makes reference of the Great Prehistoric Civilization (which begins with Duel) and implies that Kei is an ancient robot of the "Precursor Civilization" that collapsed before Duel, and is related to Zero. Basically, Shiunk is doing the same thing Kagato was doing, looking for the powerful remnants of the civilization... but with the more modest means of just getting some kick-ass weapons. The timeline I have on the wiki has it between the time Yosho first arrives on Earth but before he contacts Kanemitsu to set up a way to send his kids to space.

Photon: The Idiot Adventures   Billions of years ago
Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure   "A Billion years ago" give or take a million years

True Tenchi Muyo! Volume 3: Washu 20,000 years ago
True Tenchi Muyo! Volume 1: Jurai mainly 725-750 years ago
True Tenchi Muyo! Volume 2: Yosho mainly 710-700 years ago

Spaceship Agga Ruter   600-700 or so years ago (but may as well be centuries before)

Masquerade (and those) who cares, might not be the same dimension

Tenchi Muyo! OVA 1    "zero year"
Tenchi Muyo! OVA 2   "year 1- first half"
Tenchi Muyo! OVA 3   "year 1- second half"
Tenchi Muyo! OVA 4   "year 2" (flashback to year -15) & "year 7"?
Tenchi GXP  Television "year 2-4"
Tenchi Muyo! OVA 5   Year 3/ Year 8-maybe retconned/erased/ Year 10- Year18
Tenchi Muyo GXP Paradise Starting "Year 6-10"?  ...uh- the way it retcons Seina going to the island and acting like it occurs before the conference/spa day/pajama-jam-jam in OVA4.4 really confuses the exact time... 
Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar   Year 18 my pants

yeah honestly masquerade is likely out of canon because of the parent game attention fragile/ watch out boy being cancled but it was supposed to be a sister series to tenchi hence the name Waremono Choi. the closest we ever got was gap ⭐ p. which might as well also be not in canon sicne none of us know or care whats in it

You don't need to watch Photon at all to enjoy Tenchi. It doesn't actually contribute anything to the story. So you can watch it whenever. However... I think it does have some causal / butterfly effect on Tenchi.
