First marx generator (Sparks!)

I had just built a marx generator! It is my first marx generator I have ever built, and it make amazingly long, loud sparks, I managed to generate sparks up to 2 inches long (5 centimeters), that is about 50Kv (50,000v) coming out if this generator!

If you don't know what is a marx generator, look here on Wikipedia.

I hope you like the pictures I have just taken! Sorry, no video yet... :(

Has anyone of you built a marx generator before?

Should I make an instructable how to build a marx generator?
It is done! I made the instructable!
