Try lowering the Toroid if possible.

Also I had this problem when I had an earthed strike rail on my 30
degree banked primary. I very rarely get stikes to the primary so I
removed it and the corona disappeared entirely. I'm not sure I really
see the need for a strike rail if you have safety gaps, but I'm sure
other members of the list will have different ideas on this.
