[TCML] NST Measurements

Ok, wait, so how exactly do you guys propose measuring NST outputs for dummies? i have 9kV 30mA unit as well as a large unlabelled unit atm, and the unlabelled one arcs at over half an inch so i'm guessing it's at least 15kV 60mA. I need the measurement on the unlabelled unit. I was thinking of using a 10V input to the NST, then further stepping down the output by 20x to be measured by a voltmeter. Is this workable? (all components rated at 240V input)
