I'll stick by this part.

I had a thought after reading your post to Ed and this one. Could you
be getting MORE discharges? I seem to recall a great difference in the
number of apparent simultaneous air discharges between my neon and my
pig; but no greater length. (I'd not gotten the pig and TC into tune
when I blew my third and forth caps which I've still not replaced.)

If you're game, try identical pictures ,say, 1, 5 and 10 second
exposures with the same distance, viewpoint but with your 2 different
primary drive levels. See if you can see either a greater number of
air discharges or a larger solid area of discharges in the developed

	just a thought
