Phantom Streamers from "Cyclone Plus" Pancake Coil
Photos taken by Ciprian Timbal
4 second exposures (on average) were used to try and capture the "Phantom Streamers"...
Finally some success after years of failed attempts.
The 2" ball terminal was photographed
producing Phantom Streamers extending in excess of 11" in all
directions from the terminal.
Only the sections closest to the sphere could be captured, but
this is a successful beginning.
The plume like details of the streamers are difficult to
capture - they give off but little light, and are
fast-moving, making them next to impossible to photograph with
methods other than direct-contact
prints on film. Cip did a wonderful job on these.
