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?
