Annular Solar Eclipse Time-Lapse

Although I already posted a composite image made from several exposures of the eclipse , I had quite a lot of frames, so I went back through and made an actual little time-lapse QuickTime movie of it.

If it seems that it gets brighter or less bright at times, that's mostly just due to me not being sure what exposure time to use, and generally cycling through a few of them (1/40, 1/50, 1/60, 1/80, 1/100) but forgetting to do so at some points and winding up with, say, only 1/40 or only 1/100 at certain phases of the eclipse.
