C1 Flare Animation 3rd August

More tests with the Hutech Solar Guider here, and it performed perfectly, locking this active region dead centre in the field of view for the duration of this animation, which was over about 17 minutes.  While the plasma rupture that occurs may seem dramatic it was only a small c-class flare, pretty minuscule in the scheme of things.  Yet still it was many time larger in size than planet Earth.  The image was taken with the 100mm PST mod at 2000mm focal length with the DMK31 camera.
