JWST - 1.1.2022 at 21.10 - 1.1.2022 at 22.15 Tampere Observation number 103478

Visibility I / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

I also tried to photograph JWST from my home country and apparently I succeeded.
There were no best tools for this job (I should have used a bigger tube), but when I wanted to adjust the new engine focus ...

I took measurements again and it looks like the brightness would have risen about the magnitude after opening the sunshades.
At the time of imaging, the space telescope was nearly 800,000 km away (i.e., more than half way to L2).
