Most scopes made for electronics work comes with probe rated for 1KV. (if I remember correctly). As most scope have an FET at the input after the attenuator, if you put too much voltage on it, it will either blow the protection diode, attenuator, or the FET at the input amplifier. Either way, it will be quite expensive to repair.
You might want to check into a big high voltage probe usually used for TV CRT tube work.
I think I've found one that would work. It's 55KM and 1090 Mega Ohms. Looks like a death ray wand.. anyway..
It looks like it may have the coorect connector for my scope as well. The next part will be to figure how to gauge the inputs and what connections to make ;-)
