Newbie to Mot Coil Please help

Original poster: Allan & Sandra <ascott16@xxxxxxxxx>

Hello every one
Al Scott up here in Canada
First id like to say all you guys have been an excellent source of info to me on list and your web sites .
Thanks for all the help so fare my first coil was a table top coil driven by a flyback it worked surprisingly well
5" thin corona streamers discharging from pc hard disk platers.
Can some one please give me some advice on my Mot transformer it works well for drawing big arcs or for a jacobs ladder
do i need more mot caps for tc use and do i have to use the same uf rating
below are specs of mot setup so far
i could also use advice on a mmc setup or a good home made cap that doesnt take up as much space as 50 - 100 beer bottles LOL
The secondary was wound from Mot secondary wire some time ago i posted a question on list of approx. gauge i was told 28awg
The overal setup has a nice look if interested in seeing pics email me off list at.
