Bertha exciter Xenon bulb

A short video, to show a flash bulb from a camera being powered by my 2 pop bottle exciter tower. Bertha is to be used within wireless electric model aircraft experiments and this is a showing of the possible power available. Power is 12V from a regular multi-voltage wall adapter The bulb is approx 1″ in length. One end of the bulb goes directly to the top end of the secondary, the other goes to an aluminium computer heatsink via a wire. The heatsink bulb end has a small sparking gap, between the bulb and wire (as seen to the right of the bulb in the video).
