As you can see, this is before I discovered the real 'sweet spot' - it's tapped at 9 turns. But I was still getting pretty healthy discharges from the breakout point! Notice the corona too...creeping up faintly off from the chair back. I reeeally wanted to get a good closeup, but my optical zoom is only 2x and if I got any closer...BBBBBBAAAZZZZAAAAAAPPPPPP!!!!! I'm out a $200 digital camera and quite possibly my LIFE!

I can see now that 450VA is not going to suffice for long, either! These wispy, undulating discharges are quite satisfying for now. But they will eventually have to be replaced by fat, juicy, nasty, downright evil lookin' white hot bolts of friggin lightning!!!
