Here I set up the tesla magnifier system for Halloween 2005.
This was at an event that was held for the first time this year and
one of the organizers asked me if I could bring the coil.
The deal was basically for me to bring the coil and for him to make space and
power available, so there was nothing to loose.
Addtionally a acquaintance who works as a photographer came along and took some
pictures, which are supposed to be of better quality than the ones I made,
I will try to put some better pics up when I receive some copies.
Another shot in the dark with the coil running. My cheap digital camera just
can not capture the streamers very well. Additionally the streamer extends
to the opposite site and the choppy wind limited streamer lenth even more.
The good news is, that everything ran pretty good that night, I fired the coil
up some ten times for one or two minutes. Current draw was limited to 16A at
this location, but the subjective visual impression was pretty good.
The resonator coil was elevated with the toroid at ca 3m above ground.
After all, nothing burned down and everyone lived to tell about it.
