Chuck Harris makes a great point...don't repeat mistakes that have already been made. In his case, it might have cut his life short. It has cut short the lives of very experience engineers. If you're going to be making measurements on high energy sources, regular old lab scopes really aren't the thing. Get yourself a Fluke Scopemeter. These are designed to safely make floating measurements, and they have all the same protections that you get in a normal high quality multimeter (especially, nothing that might be live for you to accidentally touch).
Aren’t the venerable Tek 222, 222PS, and 224 also intended for that kind of use, up to about 400 or so volts on the probes?
