Tesla Coil Christmas Tree

Tesladownunder (aka Peter Terren) is the contributor of a number of items of high voltage arty goodness to Neatorama. Remember the Modern Thinker and sparks around a car?

His latest is a colorful 2 minute long exposure that looks most unlike a Tesla coil and marginally like an Xmas tree (but much better than the 2007 Tesla coil Christmas tree). No photo shopping, it's all done with a flash and changing the position of the rod with the sparks as well as colour filters.  The star is made of 10 dead fluoro tubes. Even Santa popped in to check it out -he obviously doesn't mind a zap to the foot!
