more high-voltage mayhem

A 2 second time exposure

I got the motor controller fixed (ok so I bought a better dimmer switch) and ran the coil at the full 400bps (it was running about 300 before). Then I cranked it up to 500bps to see what would happen. The extra bps doesn't seem to make much difference, whether at 400 or 500 it's a pretty awesome sight, especially compared to Tesla One. These movie stills give an idea of what it looks like in "real time". Check out the dotted line across the bottom of every picture- the flashing light from the RSG is messing up the camera.

That one was 33" long kinky or what uh-oh...
Steee-rike one! strike two! strike three!
normal service will be resumed shortly
