Yes, a good deal better and much better looking decay curve. Glad it is at least working better for you.

Posting this today just to share a little eye candy. Because I've been testing out my new heavy water conversion, I did several runs today. The wall loading has been fantastic. I fired up an old Eberline PNC and sitting in my lap six feet from the fusor it read 250 cpm. I was running at 45 kV and 11 mA.
.
My picture was probably closer to 30 to 35 kV, but I like the colors. Most of the color was courtesy of grid incandescence, but there some plasma pink too.

Great result Jim! It looks as if the wire grid is doing the work for you now.
