Tesla coil specs

I just filled in many of the electrical parameters of The Last Tesla Coil in my earlier post on the subject, for anyone who is genuinely curious / serious about Tesla coils.

(link for convenience)

I seem to have lost some of the measured specs off the secondary, so I'll try to re-measure those in the near future.

Some numbers are not easily measurable, and are only practical to arrive at by calculation. Two such numbers are the capacitance of the top electrode and the distributed capacitance of the secondary coil.
