Thinking about it, center tap isn't required for outer secondary's.
Meaning you can center tap them or not (one on each side to grounded
core or simply connect both hv windings together). The first case is
center tapped (1/2 Vout from ground to each hv winding or Vout across
both windings). The second case is Vout across both windings and core
ground is no reference. From a voltage standoff aspect, outer U
secondary's would be nice aspect.

> output and run only 1 hv line to the capacitor/gap).
