i sent this message a while ago but it never seemed to get posted. anyway...

How big of a transformer/power source do you need to get nice arcs that you 
can actually see during the day and are relatively thick. I don't mean in 
broad daylight, but streamers that are visible without the environment 
having to be pitch black. My first coil was 12kv-at-60ma and at first i didn't 
think it was working, until the sun started to set and i realized that there 
actually were faint streamers coming off the top.

How do MOTs compare to NSTs for this purpose?
