Maximum dome temperature before damage?

I have been starting my egg using rubbing alcohol as seen in this youtube video.

I've noticed that sometimes the dome thermometer reading will exceed 750 (my best guess is around 800') for about 15 seconds when lighting in this manner. Is there any chance of damaging the egg when the temps get this high, or is the egg capable of much higher dome temps before any damage occurs?
