James Webb -avaruusteleskooppi - 26.12.2021 at 23.46 - 27.12.2021 at 00.01 Kirkkonummi, Komakallio Observation number 103394

Visibility III / V

Samuli Vuorinen, Kirkkonummen komeetta

In the footsteps of Arto Oksanen, I photographed the James Webb space telescope, which is diverging from Earth. The whole evening was very cloudy, but just before midnight the sky opened to a quarter, and I got 9 minutes of exposure, which was found as if a small moving point had been found. I connected to the observation the maximum stack of images in which the object appears as a streak, and an animation in which the motion of the space telescope is shown.

Hieno suoritus tuolta etäisyydeltä! Toivotaan että matka menee hyvin ja tekniikka toimii perille päästyään.

Aivan valtavan hieno havainto! Saisimmeko tämän vielä seuraavaksi täysissä väreissä. :D
