Re: Eye of Sauron

The toroid is simple connected to the motor with a croc clip. The battery and wires are in a space between toroid and rod and should not have any corona in that sheltered location. I have LOTS of ideas to do this bigger and better or with interesting variations. Some might look a whole lot more impressive.

Very cool Peter! Curious, how did you manage the toroid to rod connection? Used the motor chassis or something like that?
Take care,

I have made an interesting effect which I have dubbed the Eye of Sauron.
Basically streamers radiate from a 5 foot rod on top of the toroid as a very long breakout point. Streamers extend from the end of the rod for another 2 or 3 feet. Not particularly interesting so far. But rotate it with a battery operated motor and take 22 second exposure and you have a 15 foot circle of streamers looking like an eye when viewed from above.
