Now that you have charged this cap up to a megavolt or so. What are
you going to do with it?;) Don't forget all the parasitics trying to
muck up the works. Corona suppression will be the biggest problem to
achieve without adding so much capacitance that tuning the secondary
will be impossible to achieve.
