Results on the partial solar eclipse (UPDATED TWICE)

I could follow the entire partial solar eclipse this morning: the sky was clear, but with periodic fields of cumuli passing.

I made a series of photographs of the event through my Meade ETX-70. Below a first result, taken around local maximum of the eclipse (11:25 CEST, 09:25 UTC). Exposure 1/100s.

Here is a full series covering the eclipse, taken at approximately 10 minute intervals (except near first and last contact):

And here is a time-lapse movie made from the images:
